Advise ipsec IKEv2 client for windows?

I need VPN for mikrotik. And as a self-education, I wanted to make a secure VPN.
in terms of performance, only ipsec and wireguard are suitable. But wireguard is in beta, so ipsec.
I picked up linux-microtik and android-mikrotik, but I couldn’t cope with windows-mikrotik.
Google on request ipsec windows gives out only about setting up a native client. I did not manage to make a request so that it issues third-party ipsec clients.
The native windows client does not support the most secure encryption methods.
I found a forticlient, it already can do almost everything, only dh group 21 can't Well, I want something open source, otherwise who knows what this forticlient has.

Which encryption methods are the most secure for you?
Windows supports aes256 and sha2 out of the box, you can configure anything you want with Set-VpnConnectionIPsecConfiguration.

The native windows client does not support the most secure encryption methods.

What? AES256-CBC not too secure for you? Well, good, what is a "secure encryption method" for you?
For Windows, there are no IPSec clients - neither paid nor free. Forticlient will not work - he works exclusively with his equipment. Once upon a time there were ZyWall, The GreenBow, ShrewSoft - but they were all terribly crooked and therefore apparently died.
On the contrary, a standard user needs to have sparks.
A "secure VPN" doesn't happen in a vacuum. First, determine what it is for. For standard use - access to the corporate network from the point of departure on a business trip or from home when working on remote control of the built-in overdofig screw client, even though PFS has to be turned off there - otherwise the key update does not work, it will work for an hour - and freezes.
Of course, this all works only with certificates, no passwords there.
