Secure Tunnel securely transfers the cloud captured packets on UCT-V and UCT-C to a GigaVUE V Series Node or Tool (only in case of UCT-C). The data from UCT-V and UCT-C are encapsulated in PCAPng format, and the encrypted data is sent over a TLS connection to a GigaVUE V Series Node.
Secure Tunnel can also transfer the cloud captured packets from a GigaVUE V Series Node to another GigaVUE V Series Node.
In case of GigaVUE V Series Node to GigaVUE V Series node, the traffic from the GigaVUE V Series Node 1 is encapped using PCAPNG format and transported to GigaVUE V Series Node 2 where the traffic is decapped. The secure tunnels between V Series Node to V Series Node have multiple uses cases.
The GigaVUE V Series Node decapsulates and processes the packet per the configuration. The decapsulated packet can be sent to the application such as De-duplication, Application Intelligence, Load balancer and to the tool. The Load Balancer on this node can send the packets to multiple V series Nodes, in this case the packets can be encapsulated again and sent over a secure tunnel.
