A standard protocol that provides authentication and encryption for communications over the Internet. IPSec is used to secure VPN tunnel. Also see VPN, L2F, PPTP, and L2TP.
Secure transmission over IP. IPsec is an extension of the IP protocol used for encryption and authentication. Encryption occurs at the transport layer of the OSI model, the application doesn't have to support encryption for the encryption process to work. Therefore, all network traffic generated by applications can be encrypted regardless of the application See Also http://www.netbsd.org/Documentation/network/ipsec/.

One of two protocols (with PPTP) used for VPNs. IPsec stands for IP security.
A framework of open standards for ensuring secure private communications over the Internet. Based on standards developed by the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF), IPSec ensures confidentiality, integrity, and authenticity of data communications across a public network. IPSec provides a necessary component of a standards-based, flexible solution for deploying a network wide security policy.

Short for IP Security, a set of protocols developed by the Internet Engineering Task Force to support secure exchange of packets at the IP layer.
Internet Protocol Security. IPSec is a series of guidelines for securing private information transmitted over public networks. IPSec is a VPN method providing a higher level of security than PPTP.
Internet Protocol Security is a standards-based VPN (Virtual Private Network) that offers flexible solutions for secure data communications across a public network like the Internet. IPSec is built around a number of standardized cryptographic techniques to provide confidentiality, data integrity and authentication at the IP layer.
Internet Protocol Security. An increasing standard for security at the network layer of network communication.
Internet Protocol Security describes the IETF protocols that protect the secure exchange of packets on the IP layer.
The IETF standard for "secure IP" transport. Typically IPSEC is used in branch-VPN tunnels between routed LAN segments, but it's destined to become the...
Short for Internet Protocol Security. IPsec is a framework for a set of protocols for security at the network or at the packet processing layer of the network communication. Used in virtual private networks, one advantage of IPsec is that security arrangements can be handled without requiring changes to individual computers.
(Internet Protocol Security ) – IPSec is a standard for security at the network or packet processing layer of network communication. IPSec essentially encrypts data to create secure data transmissions across private and public networks such as the Internet and allows companies to implement VPNs (Vitual Private Networks) across the Internet as a cost effective alternative to dedicated connections.

IP Security Protocol that provides encryption and authentication services for IP packets.
Internet Protocol Security allows for virtual private networking using authentication and encryption between IP networks.
Internet Protocol Security is an internationally recognised VPN protocol suite developed by the IETF (Internet Engineering Task Force).
Internet Protocol Security, extensions to both IPv4 (optional), and IPv6 (mandatory), which provide authentication and privacy mechanisms.
IP Security Protocol. A framework of open standards that provides data confidentiality, data integrity, and data authentication between participating peers. IPSec provides these security services at the IP layer; it uses IKE to handle negotiation of protocols and algorithms based on local policy and to generate the encryption and authentication keys to be used by IPSec. IPSec can be used to protect one or more data flows between a pair of hosts, between a pair of security gateways, or between a security gateway and a host. RFC 2401 documents IP Security Architecture.
Internet Protocol Security. A collection of protocols for secure exchange of packets at the internet protocol (IP) layer. IPsec supports two encryption modes: Transport mode encrypts only the data portion of each packet; Tunnel mode encrypts the data portion and header of each packet.
IP security (IPSec) is a suite of security protocols and protection services based on cryptography.
IP Security. The protocol used to give authentication and/or encryption to IP packets. RFC 2401 and many others
IPsec utilizes Virtual Private Networks (VPNs) for the purposes of allowing for remote user access through dial-up connection to private networks.
(IP Security) A widely used collection of security protocols developed and supported by the IETF (Internet Engineering Task Force), which allows for private and secure communications across the public Internet. Over 40 RFCs (requests for comments) specify authentication, encryption, and key management in IPsec.
(Internet Protocol Security) - A VPN protocol used to implement secure exchange of packets at the IP layer.
A set of security standards used to provide privacy and authentication services at the Internet Protocol (IP) layer.
Internet Protocol Security - an internet protocol security system.
IPsec (an abbreviation of IP security) is a standard for securing Internet Protocol (IP) communications by encrypting and authenticating all IP packets.
IP Security. An implementation of public key infrastructure, public key cryptogrophy.
IP Security. IP-level security for authentication and encryption.
A protocol that provides security for transmission of sensitive information over unprotected networks
The security architecture (IPsec) that provides protection for IP datagrams.
IP Security Protocol. A collection of IP security measures that comprise an optional tunneling protocol. IPsec supports authentication to verify the validity of the originating address in the header of every packet of a packet stream.
IPSec is an emerging standard to add security services to the IP protocol. It provides robust security, encompassing user authentication, privacy, and data integrity.
A virtual private networking protocol that is part of the IPv6 but is widely used now in IPv4.
IP Security. An IETF standard that is used to provide security for transmission of sensitive information over unprotected networks such as the Internet. IPSec acts at the network layer, protecting and authenticating IP packets between participating IPSec devices ("peers"), such as Cisco routers.
Internet Protocol Security. An emerging standard, this Bay Networks supported tunneling protocol offers strong encryption, support for IP address translation, and packet-by-packet authentication. Special ISP services are not required.
IP Security. A standard way to add security to Internet communications. The secure aspects of IPSec are usually implemented in three parts: the authentication header (AH), the Encapsulating Security Payload (ESP), and the Internet Key Exchange (IKE).
Internet Protocol Security, an IETF standard for TCP/IP layer security that provides encryption, host authentication, and data integrity.
A set of protocols developed by the IETF to support secure exchange of packets at the IP layer. IPSec has been deployed widely to implement VPNs.
This acronym means "Internet Protocol (IP) Security" and refers to the suite of protocols being developed at the IETF (Internet Engineering Task Force) that can be used for secure, private communications across the Internet, over VPN. IPSEC generally uses static keys to accomplish its security and privacy goals, though the underlying protocols can also be handled using ISAKMP.
IPsec (IP security) is a suite of protocols for securing Internet Protocol (IP) communications by authenticating and/or encrypting each IP packet in a data stream. IPsec also includes protocols for cryptographic key establishment.
