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.

Re: Tunnel mode with CPSec disabled

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
