Is anyone seeing encription as a must for non-DoD WAN - LAN private networks?

VLAN and security at the network side.

by Oz_Media In reply to VoIP Encription

As I have only worked with NEC and Nortel PBX solutions for VoIP I have always left it up to the admin to secure his network. NEC does install a VLAN automatically for any softphone users and will offer choices for internal networks that permit the admin to utilize his own security measurees. As describe din the article I linked to, VLANS are about the only real 'switch-based' solution they can justifiy, in order to have a VoIP service retain it's QOS and even come near POTS levels.

Many are implementing Ipsec

by dafe2 In reply to VoIP Encription

I'm finding many business units & scientific workgroups are requesting Ipsec implementations...

E-Mail encryption seems to be (more) popular though.

Nortel CS1KE and Encrypting RTP Audio

by joshgluck In reply to Many are implementing Ips ...

I am also interested in finding out more about encrypting the audio portion, and I guess signaling as well, for my VOIP installation. I had not previously been as concerned with this but now with the installation mostly completed and migrated to full time production we are looking at ways to increase reliability, security and features. Has anyone completed an install of Nortel sets with a cisco network infrastructure and implemented IPSec or some other encryption mechanism to enhance their deployment? I will be speaking with my Nortel team today on what others are doing and their recommendations as well..
