IPsec package you can install with ipsec-tools package. To install that open your terminal with CTRL+ALT+T and then type as

sudo apt-get install ipsec-tools

and cypher algorithms are not direct but you can get them through the python .

sudo apt-get install python-otr

you can get any package source with this command

 sudo apt-get source <packagename>

for example:

 sudo apt-get source ipsec-tools
