Encryption between 3560 and 3750 series switches

Hello,

I came across this post regarding encryption and had some questions:  https://supportforums.cisco.com/message/3686207#3686207

We may be required, by federal regulations, to encrypt traffic between a few of our buildings.  I do not believe we have the X-series switches, but have the following models which the encryption would need to take place:

Model:  WS-C3560-48PS

IOS:  12.2(55)SE1 (IPBASEK9)

Model:  WS-C3750-48P

IOS:  12.2(55)SE1 (IPBASEK9)

Currently, we have MM fiber connection the two switches listed above.  Are these devices capable of any encryption between them?  What about add-on SFP modules, etc?

Don't believe 3560/3750 support any device-to-device encryption (beyond SSH to the device itself).

If you are talking about MAC-SEC then only the "X", like 3560X and the 3750X, will support MAC-SEC encryption and you need an optional service module, the C3KX-SM-10G.

Thank you for the reply.  I'll leave it open for the rest of the day in case anyone else has any information.  In the meantime, does there happen to be a list of switch products that do support encryption that might fit our scenario?

*EDIT*  The encryption type we would be required to have would be NIST.  I'm new to NIST so I'm not sure if there would be more information required for me to give to anyone.
