Re: Encryption provided to VPN Client

Remote Access VPN clients negotiate the encryption based on the settings in the head end ASA (or whatever device terminates the corporate remote access VPN). It can be SSL or IPSec method with other various parameters according to configuration settings.

Once a VPN session is established, the client software encapsulates traffic going to the head end and decapsulates data received using the negotiated settings. The head end does the same.

Mahesh,

IPSec would protect the data in transit to networks reached via the head end via the VPN. It does nothing to data at rest (stored) on the client.

Hi MArvin,

I check the VPN client software on the user PC under transport it has IPSEc over TCP so does it mean that IPSEC provides the encryption to the Client Data?
