Layer 2 encryption over GigabitEthernet

We are looking for a solution to avoid VPNs to encrypt data between HQ and Bldgs (point-to-multipoint) Gigabit fiber(untrusted media).

Is there any cisco's product providing layer2 encryption over Giga fiber?

The HQ has a 6509s and remote bldgs have mixed of 3750s,4500s in trunks.

Hi,

If you go with Cisco you'll be limited to VPN's but there are plenty of 3rd party devices which are available, such as the following:

You can do it with Cisco switches. You don't need Cisco ASA for that.

The feature you're looking for is called "MACSec". Here' s a link http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/switches/lan/trustsec/configuration/guide/config.html

Please rate if it helps.

Regards
