Controller-less WLANs

Does Aruba Instant AP support forming an IPSec tunnel to Aruba Controller?

Environment : This applies to Aruba Instant Access Point starting from 6.3.1.1-4.0 release.

 

An IPsec tunnel is configured to ensure that the data flow between the networks is encrypted. When configured, the IPSec tunnel to the controller secures corporate data. 

Starting from 6.3.1.1-4.0 release, Instant allows you to enable automatic configuration of the GRE tunnel from an IAP to Aruba Mobility Controller. By using an IPsec connection, the IAPs can now set up a GRE tunnel with the controller. This feature eliminates the need for the manual configuration of tunnel interface on the controller.

Following figures from IAP web interface show us the configuration:
