Hey Andreas,

I shit on that hypothetical crypto discussion stuff - these blokes with their type of hypothetically blabla normally have only one effect: users refrain from switching on SSL in their outlook thinking "its too unsecure and too compilated even". For this reason the front doors are open normally ;-)

I'am only interessted in a more secure WRT->WRT communication. More secure than plaintext. Needs to be KISS. CIPE will do that. Windows? What's that?

Regards, Sven-Ola

Perhaps you have a look at the follwing url in advance: http://www.openwrt.org/forum/viewtopic.php?t=454

There are some hypercritical opinions about CIPE, i hadn´t enough time or i was 2 lazy to read this stuff up to now, but i will.

I currently have ~30 Linux2Linux tunnels with CIPE in production state without any technical problems or securitiy issues. The major prob with CIPE *IMHO*, that development of the win32 port really is dead, currently there is a major bug in W-XPSP2 which causes virtual interfaces to not show up in the device list. This makes it (or will make it shortly) unusable in some cases.

Thats why I´m planning to migrate all my current cipe tunnels to OpenVPN, last waterhole is a cheap hardware router for this XPSP2 cases, only because i believe this would be less work than moving the whole network to OpenVPN.

On the other hand, there are interconnections with another isp using cipe, which i can´t migrate anyway, so i will have to keep 2 different protocols running....

I´ll tell more next week, i gotta check this small router first.
