Listening on Port 500/UDP IPsec VPN?

Briefly describe your issue below:

Doing a sudo netstat -anup shows that Parrot OS is listening for several UDP ports from the charon process, which looks to be StrongSwan. I never set up a VPN server on Parrot Home. Is a VPN server set up by default? Why is listening for 500/UDP (the default port for IPsec VPN)?

What version of Parrot are you running? (include version (e.g. 4.6), edition(e.g. Home//KDE/OVA, etc.), and architecture (currently we only support amd64)

4.6 Home

What method did you use to install Parrot? (Debian Standard / Debian GTK / parrot-experimental)

Configured to multiboot with other systems? (yes / no) no
