IPv6 and IPsec should be "fun"... IPsec, IPv6 and multicast is 'the holy 
grail' (does not work on linux according to my knowlegde).

The problem is that securing a routing protocol you need to authenticate the 
propagation of the topology/distance information through the whole net. IPsec 
cannot really do this.

3) You can't leave the game.
