Tunnel mode with CPSec disabled

Hi all,

 

If we have CPSec disabled, is client traffic encrypted when in tunnel mode?

Cpsec does not encrypt user data; only control plane data between the AP and controller.

User traffic is encapsulated in GRE. If your wireless traffic uses encryption, that encryption will be encapsulated in GRE.

Hi Colin Joseph,

 

I understand that in the tunnel mode as the data is encapsulated, cpsec mode is not necessary, is it ?

CPSEC is required for AP security and for bridge mode forwarding of Virtual APs and interfaces:  http://community.arubanetworks.com/t5/Controller-Based-WLANs/What-is-control-plane-security-How-does-one-configure-verify-it/ta-p/174912
