The packages libident (implementing RFC 1413) and qident (using this library) are placed in the directory "security". The ident protocol provides no form of security, and as far as I can see, these programs don't add any additional functionality that might enhance the protocol.

Move these packages to "net", joining alternative implementations fair-identd, nidentd and oidentd.
