openvpn: Virtual Private Network daemon

 An application to securely tunnel IP networks over a single UDP or TCP port.
 It can be used to access remote sites, make secure point to point connections,
 enhance WiFi security, etc.
 .
 OpenVPN uses all of the encryption, authentication, and certification features
 of the OpenSSL library (any cipher, key size, or HMAC digest).
 .
 OpenVPN may use static, pre-shared keys or TLS-based dynamic key exchange. It
 also supports VPNs with dynamic endpoints (DHCP or dial-up clients), tunnels
 over NAT or connection-oriented stateful firewalls (like Linux's iptables).
