Well that's the proof of the backdoor then!

Everyone knows TOP SECRET GOVERNMENT COMPUTERS USE ONLY UPPERCASE 
LETTERS. They also make that cool bbbbbp-bbbbbp sound as they print out 
embassy cables at 300 bps.

But actually, RFC 4301 (ahem, please watch your capitalization) says:
 The spelling "IPsec" is preferred and used throughout this and all
   related IPsec standards.  All other capitalizations of IPsec (e.g.,
   IPSEC, IPSec, ipsec) are deprecated.  However, any capitalization of
   the sequence of letters "IPsec" should be understood to refer to the
   IPsec protocols.
