You know that windows 2000 was released with this functionality. Its nothing new and it is not ipv6 specific.

Who is using it precisely?

Microsoft, on 200,000 computers at the time of the paper below.

We have a couple of departments using IPsec here and one more seriously looking at it. (Mainly a matter of finding time to test and implement.)

Plus there are at least a couple of other Universities.

And I see a City has been added to the list.
