IP tunneling (IP

IP tunneling (IP encapsulation) is a technique to encapsulate IP datagram within IP datagrams, which allows datagrams destined for one IP address to be wrapped and redirected to another IP address. IP encapsulation is now commonly used in Extranet, Mobile-IP, IP-Multicast, tunneled host or network.

IPSec tunnel mode is the

IPSec tunnel mode is the default mode. With tunnel mode, the entire original IP packet is protected by IPSec. This means IPSec wraps the original packet, encrypts it, adds a new IP header and sends it to the other side of the VPN tunnel (IPSec peer). Tunnel mode is most commonly used between gateways (Cisco routers or ASA firewalls), or at an end-station to a gateway, the gateway acting as a proxy for the hosts behind it.

IP tunneling is a process to encapsulate an IP datagram with another IP datagram so as to wrap a packet and send it to destined location. GRE protocol is used for the same.

Ipsec will encapsulates data

Ipsec will encapsulates data and Transmits it over secured network. provide security authentication integrity . It works in 2 modes tunnel mode and transport mode. It is a virtual secured network which uses AES and public private encryption method.
