Efficiency Consideration for Data Packets Encryption within Wireless VPN Tunneling for Video Streaming

Daniel Simion, Mihai Florentin Ursuleanu, Adrian Graur, Alin Dan Potorac, Alexandru Lavric


With the help of the Internet today we can communicate with anyone from anyplace to access all types of data with a high level of QoS. This mobility is available for legitimate users, as well as for illegitimate ones, for this reason we need extra data security. A solution for QoS and data confidentiality is Virtual Private Network (VPN); ways, in which we can reduce operational costs, grow productivity, simplify network topology and extend the area of connectivity. Video data packets must arrive with a constant and low delay at the same rate in order to have e real time transmission. This paper presents an analysis of different protocols used and the way that video data packets are encapsulated and encrypted for a high level of QoS in a VPN connection.
