Actually, they are very closely related. PGPnet is an IPsec implementation
that allows for the use of PGP authentication/encryption by both parties.
It is part of the PGP suite. (Remember that PGP is not just the OpenPGP
program; it is also PGPdisk, PGPnet, and the related plugins.) One
*should* associate the security that comes with PGP together with
PGPnet; PGPnet is only as secure as PGP itself.
