The KAME project, a sub-project of the WIDE Project, was joint effort of six organizations in Japan which aimed to provide a free IPv6 and IPsec (for both IPv4 and IPv6) protocol stack implementation for variants of the BSD Unix computer operating-system. The project began in 1998 and on November 7, 2005 it was announced that the project would be finished at the end of March 2006. The name KAME is a short version of Karigome, the location of the project's offices beside Keio University SFC.
KAME Project's code is based on "WIDE Hydrangea" IPv6/IPsec stack by WIDE Project.
The following organizations participated in the project:
FreeBSD, NetBSD and DragonFly BSD integrated IPSec and IPv6 code from the KAME project; OpenBSD integrated just IPv6 code rather than both (having developed their own IPSec stack). Linux also integrated code from the project in its native IPsec implementation.
