    One of the new "Core Technologies" listed for Mavericks is Application Layer VPN:

    However, there is absolutely zero documentation on this. I have searched the web and Apple's support site all morning and cannot find, and there is no mention of, this feature; Except on the Mavericks what's-new page.

    Why is this feature being advertised if it doesn't actually exist? Or does it?

    Does anyone know?

    I read that as there's a new developer API available. I think the developers will have to write their applications to take advantage of this feature.

    This is for configuring a system level VPN accessible to all applications, not a "Per-Application VPN".

    I believe that the feature mentioned by the OP is something that is provided by the MacOS X Managed Client in 10.9. Using it requires MacOS X Server 3 and the new Profile Manager to push out per-app VPN Payload configurations to managed machines.
