The CEF-Switched Multipoint GRE Tunnels feature enables CEF switching of IP traffic to and from multipoint GRE tunnels. Tunnel traffic can be forwarded to a prefix through a tunnel destination when both the prefix and the tunnel destination are specified by the application.

This feature introduces CEF switching over multipoint GRE tunnels. Previously, only process switching was available for multipoint GRE tunnels.

CEF does not care if the tunnel are protected with ipsec, it just look at prefix and tunnel destination.
