GNU SIP Witch is a secure peer-to-peer VoIP server.  Calls can be made
even behind NAT firewalls, and without needing a service provider.  SIP
Witch can be used on the desktop to create bottom-up secure calling
networks as a free software alternative to Skype.  SIP Witch can also
be used as a stand-alone SIP-based office telephone server, or to
create secure VoIP networks for an existing IP-PBX such as Asterisk,
FreeSWITCH, or Yate.
This package contains the sipwitch daemon and related utilities.
