Applies to

  • ONTAP 9.8 and higher
  • SMB
  • NFS
  • iSCSI

Answer

  • Introduced in ONTAP 9.8, Internet Protocol security (IPsec) provides data authentication, integrity, and over the wire encryption between two endpoints over an IP network.
  • You can configure ONTAP clusters and storage virtual machines (SVMs) to use IPsec when transferring data across a wire.
    • ONTAP features such as NFS, CIFS/SMB, and iSCSI can take advantage of this capability to transfer data-in-flight in an encrypted state.
