Just as a heads-up - "IPv6 where encryption is built in" doesn't mean what
you think it means. :)

IPv6 uses *the same exact* IPSec that IPv4 uses.  The only difference is that
IPSec is an *optional* thing to support under IPv4, while an IPv6 stack has
to support it.

This in *no* way means that a site running IPv6 has to, or does, actually
configure and enable the IPSec support - just that the stack has to come with
the pieces needed to do it if the site so chooses.  And in fact, given the
amount of time that IPSec has been out for both IPv4 and IPv6, I doubt that
there's any sites that have set it up for IPv6 that did *not* already use it
for IPv4....
