  AESOP, Advanced Encrypted Stackable Open Proxy


 <http://kryptology.org/aesop/> Aesop is a TCP-proxy that supports many
advanced and powerful features. It's designed to be secure, fast and
reliable. Aesop makes use of strong cryptography for all its
data-transmission up to the end-link. Another powerful feature of Aesop is
that Aesop proxies can be transparently stacked into a secure chain. Aesop
supports IPv6 and can be used as secure IPv4-to-IPv6 tunnel for TCP
connections. Aesop is implemented using multiplexing and is therefore fast
and lightweight.

Key features:
 - Fast and reliable TCP-proxy.
 - Strong cryptography: Arcfour (RC4) with a 512bit key exchanged by the
Signed Diffie Hellman protocol (With RSA/MD5 for the signature).
 - Encryption and key exchange is all transparent to the user.
 - Multiple proxies can be stacked in a chain to create a secure anonymous
route, there is no limit on how many proxies can be stacked. Stacking is
done all transparent to the user.
 - Full IPv6 support.
 - Proper forwarding and handling of Out-of-Band (OOB) data.
 - Optimal performance by a single-thread design. Aesop is fully
 - Lightweight.
