Encryption over fiber P2P

Unanswered Question

I am looking for some hardware recommendations for the following implementation.

Three locations, roughly 1 mile distance between each site, will be connected via single mode fiber. All traffic between each of the three sites will need to be encrypted.

I am curious if there is a gig module for the Pix 515, or would I need to step up to an ASA?

Both the Pix 525 and 535 support fibre connectivity multimode SC and you can buy cards for them.

However unless you already have one of these and even then it might be a better idea to look at the ASA's as these devices are replacing the pix models.

You could also consider a router if you need other functionality that the ASA will not support. The ISR routers support AIM's which will do encryption in hardware.
