Product Description

Cisco IOS/IPSec is the implementation of IPSec within Cisco's Internetwork Operating System (IOS). IPSec is a proposed Internet standard (RFCs 2401-2410 and 2451) which provides confidentiality, authentication and integrity for IP data transmitted over untrusted links or networks. A common application of IOS/IPSec is the construction of Virtual Private Networks (VPNs).

The scope of the evaluation included the components of the IOS software that implement the IPSec function, and functions that are relevant to the secure configuration and operation of IPSec. The evaluated configuration requires the use of hardware acceleration modules.

The evaluated platforms are:
