10.6: Save Cisco IPSec password in the Keychain
Authored by: devlogic on Aug 29, '09 06:16:17AM
I couldn't find a way to import the .pcf file, but you can decrypt the shared secret that's in the PCF file with this site, or you can download the source code for the decryption program from the same page, compile it (on a linux box, in my case) and run the decryption locally.

10.6: Save Cisco IPSec password in the Keychain
Authored by: playdrums on Aug 29, '09 01:35:31PM

So, far it doesn't support import of .pcf files. There is a way to save OS X network configs to text files similar to a .pcf. I don't know if there is any ability to encrypt the password.

Even better though is that you can use a cert. If your organization has a cert your admin can put that on their machine in a secure way then use the above option to add an appropriate vpn config that uses the cert.
