Organizational espionage is real and set to intensify, contributing to a shift to the more efficient encryption of sensitive traffic at Layer 2. Compared to IPSec (Layer 3), Layer 2 secure encryption can boost network performance by up to 50%. This paper outlines the shift, and looks at the drivers and benefits of Layer 2 encryption.

First introduced to the CV Series virtualized encryption range in 2018, Thales Network Independent Encryption is now available for the CN Series of hardware encryption devices. It enables concurrent, policy-based multi-layer encryption for modern Ethernet and Internet protocol architecture.


Developed specifically for today’s multi-layer networks, Network Independent Encryption provides end-to-end encryption security without the typical performance and bandwidth costs associated with IPSec encryption solutions. Historically, different network types have required different encryption solutions. As network architecture has evolved to comprise multiple transport layers, this has implications for network security, performance and cost.


In the case of Internet protocols, the most common encryption solution, IPSec, is over 20 years old. IPSec was not developed with wide area networking and cloud applications in mind; it incurs additional bandwidth costs and can impact significantly on network performance.

High Speed Encryptors provide the optimal, most efficient means of encrypting data across modern metro or wide area Ethernet networks. By encrypting the payload of Ethernet traffic, sensitive data (including all IP addresses) is kept completely private whilst the frame headers are left unencrypted so that traffic can still be switched across the network. Although HSEs are designed for use across layer 2 networks such as metro or carrier Ethernet services, they can also be effectively deployed across layer 3 MPLS or IP/VPN environments.

As the old saying goes, “loose lips sink ships”. For today’s enterprises, it is network metadata doing the talking—and a lot of potentially dangerous entities are listening. This paper looks at the risks that metadata can pose to many organizations, and it reveals how transmission security can be used to create a safeguard against nefarious network traffic analysis.
