"The next generation of IP, IP version 6 (IPv6), supports IPSec natively, since IPSec is a requirement of the IETF’s specification for IPv6."

"IPSec is a collection of protocols. Three protocols are used to handle encapsulation, encryption, and authentication — the AH (Authentication Header), the ESP (Encapsulating Security Payload), and the IKE (Internet Key Exchange). IPSec is typically transparent to end users. Applications do not need to be rewritten nor do users need to be retrained to use IPSec-based networks. End users need not even be aware that they are using IPSec to tunnel data through an insecure network."
