Mesh Encryption

Definition(s):

  A special case of many host-to-host VPNs. Whenever one host in a network wishes to communicate with another host in the network, it first establishes an IPsec connection. Typically, adding or removing one node in the mesh does not require reconfiguration of the other nodes.
