Openswan has a script on contrib/ that can convert pcf files to openswan
config files. However, the pcf file can contain an obfuscated group PSK. I don't know
if anyone ever wrote a proper deobfuscation program. There used to be something at which basically amounted to running the
cisco client through ltrace -i and read it from a memcpy statement.

If this is using XAUTH, Openswan now supports storing the XAUTH password in its
/etc/ipsec.secrets file (though I know NM would like to be able to just pass all
arguments to openswan)

Paul, who wishes he had more cycles to spend on integrating NM and openswan.
