    Encryption: SEAL vs AES

    Hello
    I was wondering about wich cypher to choose in a GRE+IPSEC tunnel.

    Assuming that they works both on software on my platforms, wich is the best
    to choose?

    The "open" standard AES or the CISCO proprietary SEAL Cypher?

    Thank you

    From my past expirience always stick to the standard solutions... AES
    is well tested and fast algoritham so go for it....

    AES 128 in software is only a little slower than SEAL.
    But well tested and standard.
    SEAL isn't available in hardware crypto engine.

    Thank you

    Seal is a cisco proprietary and compared to AES could be a little more
    tricky to be "cracked" since is less known, right?
