+* **Updated the ipsec-secgw sample application.**
+  The ``ipsec-secgw`` sample application has been updated to use the new
+  ``librte_ipsec`` library also added in this release.
+  The original functionality of ipsec-secgw is retained, a new command line
+  parameter ``-l`` has  been added to ipsec-secgw to use the IPsec library,
+  instead of the existing IPsec code in the application.
+  The IPsec library does not support all the functionality of the existing
+  ipsec-secgw application, its is planned to add the outstanding functionality
+  in future releases.
+  See :doc:`../sample_app_ug/ipsec_secgw` for more information.

+Test directory
+The test directory contains scripts for testing the various encryption
+The purpose of the scripts is to automate ipsec-secgw testing
+using another system running linux as a DUT.
+The user must setup the following environment variables:
+*   ``SGW_PATH``: path to the ipsec-secgw binary to test.
+*   ``REMOTE_HOST``: IP address/hostname of the DUT.
+*   ``REMOTE_IFACE``: interface name for the test-port on the DUT.
+*   ``ETH_DEV``: ethernet device to be used on the SUT by DPDK ('-w <pci-id>')
+Also the user can optionally setup:
+*   ``SGW_LCORE``: lcore to run ipsec-secgw on (default value is 0)
+*   ``CRYPTO_DEV``: crypto device to be used ('-w <pci-id>'). If none specified
+    appropriate vdevs will be created by the script
+Note that most of the tests require the appropriate crypto PMD/device to be
+Server configuration
+Two servers are required for the tests, SUT and DUT.
+Make sure the user from the SUT can ssh to the DUT without entering the password.
+To enable this feature keys must be setup on the DUT.
+``ssh-keygen`` will make a private & public key pair on the SUT.
+``ssh-copy-id`` <user name>@<target host name> on the SUT will copy the public
+key to the DUT. It will ask for credentials so that it can upload the public key.
+The SUT and DUT are connected through at least 2 NIC ports.
+One NIC port is expected to be managed by linux on both machines and will be
+used as a control path.
+The second NIC port (test-port) should be bound to DPDK on the SUT, and should
+be managed by linux on the DUT.
+The script starts ``ipsec-secgw`` with 2 NIC devices: ``test-port`` and
+``tap vdev``.
+It then configures the local tap interface and the remote interface and IPsec
+policies in the following way:
+Traffic going over the test-port in both directions has to be protected by IPsec.
+Traffic going over the TAP port in both directions does not have to be protected.
