    I am taking a stand by stating that Cisco LEAP provides better security than IPSec VPN!. All types of comments are welcome: http://wlanresearch.com

    Thanks,

    Correct me if I'm wrong but LEAP is designed as a replacement for WEP (which anyone with a WLAN should know is weak.) and IPSec on a VPN is designed to authenticate devices over IP regardless of the connection type wired, wireless, Intra, Inter etc.....Since most IT managers consider network security as close to them as their underwear, I believe that IPSec for VPN security is not going anywhere....Plus why would VPN providers want to pay Cisco any more than they have to? I can't see companies like Nortel moving toward a cisco product...

    Leap looks like a good solution to protect Access Points (more secure than WeP)...but as Virtual Private Connections go IPSec is not going away soon.

    LEAP is a quantum leap (no pun :)) improvement to WEP. It is still using RC4 128-Bit WEP, but it produces dynamic WEP key per PACKET. Go to Cisco.com to learn about it.
