New project: TCP-MD5

Robert Varga

Hello everyone,

We would like to propose a new project, TCP-MD5, which gives Java applications access to RFC2385 (MD5 Signature Option) when running on a supported operating system (x86_64 Linux right now).

The functionality has been developed as part of BGPCEP project, where it is used to protect PCEP and BGP sessions -- a feature typically required by service providers. Since this piece is useful outside of the BGPCEP project and is feature-complete, we would like to separate it out and ship it as a separate project in Helium.

The details are over at, feedback and contributors are welcome :)
