GRE tunnel vs LSVPN which one to use for HUB and Spoke

L0 Member

Hi All,


I am researching between GRE and LSVPN tunnel for a HUB and Spoke design, basically for ISE authentication traffic from Meraki wireless to HUB ISE.


But i can't seem to find any document stating which one is fit for this purpose or what are the differences. GRE seems easy to deploy but less secure. What would be the benefit of using LSVPN?

With the LSVPN, all traffic between the sites will be encrypted/protected. I would recommend this over GRE.
