While the importance of developing software for privacy and authentication on the Internet can hardly be gainsaid today, the process of bringing standards to fruition can be a long and arduous one. We have used prototyping methods to track the efforts of the Internet Engineering Task Force network security group (IPSEC), concentrating on the software challenges and advantages posed by the standards. As a result, we have some observations and useful guidelines for current and future developers of secure networking software.
