1- Use SSL,

2- Use SSH

that will encrypt all traffics inside your corporate LAN, independent of your network.

Forgive me for asking this, but why are you wanting to encrypt internal traffic between switch ports?

Is it because of information between or within departments? Instead of that why would you not just create VLAN for the separate departments and then ACL the traffic, no access is granted outside the VLAN unless by the ACL.

What are you trying to accomplish?

this is for specific solution

its mandatory to encrypt packet while traveling between endpoints and clients

Hani,

I think you should be looking at the endpoints to do the encryption/ decryption, and the cisco gear to carry the traffic.

As another poster responded SSH/SSL. will happily encrypt the payload.

We also have certain areas that require encryption. Layer 2 ports can't do it today and between multiple subnets would be a nightmare. Have the OS perform the encryption.
