Which software offers more security, CIPE or IPsec?

Requires Free Membership to View

Both CIPE and IPsec allow you to do encryption and tunnelling at the IP level. With respect to the differences between the two and which is more or less secure, the CIPE FAQ answers this question pretty well. It has also been my experience that this answer is true -- the security is generally equivalent. CIPE can occasionally have better performance, but IPsec is usually better-supported across platforms.
