network-manager-l2tp certificate support

PPA description

NetworkManager-l2tp 1.8.2 with user and machine certificate support

NetworkManager-l2tp 1.8.2's certificate support is provided by OpenSSL, unfortunately Ubuntu doesn't allow linking GPLv2+ licensed code with the incompatible OpenSSL license. Workaround was to release under GPLv3 and statically link against libcrypto.a built from a bundled copy of an OpenSSL 3.0.0 alpha1 which uses Apache License 2.0. Note: GPLv3 license is compatible with Apache License 2.0.

After adding this PPA to your system, issue the following to install :

    sudo apt install network-manager-l2tp network-manager-l2tp-gnome

Home page : https://github.com/nm-l2tp/NetworkManager-l2tp

You may need to stop and disable the system xl2tpd if you aren't able to establish a VPN connection. See "Issue with not stopping system xl2tpd service" in the README.md file:
    https://github.com/nm-l2tp/NetworkManager-l2tp/blob/master/README.md

For backwards compatibility with most L2TP/IPsec VPN servers out there, NetworkManager-l2tp >= 1.2.16 no longer use the strongSwan and libreswan default set of allowed algorithms, instead algorithms that are a merge of Windows 10 and macOS/iOS/iPadOS L2TP/IPsec clients' IKEv1 proposals are used instead for the default. The weakest proposals that were not common to both Win10 and iOS were dropped, but all of the strongest ones were kept.
