IPsec dead by 2008, says who? Gartner, that's who! :-)

Techworld.com - IPsec dead by 2008, says Gartner: "The IPsec protocol that has served remote access so well for the last decade is now in its death throes, Gartner has prophesised."

My #1 question about this is: if true, how it affects IPv6? IPv6, as we all know, includes IPSec as an inherent piece, which simply cannot be removed.

I suspect they mean "IPSec as a way for user remote access over IPv4 networks is dead", which it well might be...
