is it possible to choose the different mode cbc <-- > ebc to establish a vpn-connection or how does it works!

Re: cbc <--> ebc

ECB mode (Electronic CodeBook):

• Each plaintext block always gives the same

ciphertext block

• Vulnerable to insertion, replay, and dictionary

attack

CBC mode (Cipher Block Chaining):

• Before encrypting XOR onto the current plaintext

block with previous ciphertext block

• IPsec uses this mode in most cases

I think CBC is used in all current Cisco Ipsec iplementation. I dont know way how to configure ebc support - maybe it was used in some older IOS versions but now is only cbc supported
