  • Publication number: 20210288935
    Abstract: Presented herein are embodiments of mechanisms to add security in the communication of messages between devices, particularly in the context of VXLAN (Virtual eXtensible Local Area Network (LAN)) environments. When a VXLAN device sends a multicast message to discover other devices in the network, there is possibilities for rogue devices to respond and then receive data that is not intended for them. In one or more embodiments, information handling systems operating as a VTEP (VXLAN tunnel endpoint) may use enhanced encryption that is shared with other authorized VTEP—but not shared with rough VTEP devices—to verify other authorized VTEPs. In one or more embodiments, information used to verify a VTEP device is included in the message, such as included in the header, which a properly configured receiving VTEP will recognize and use to verify that that sending VTEP is not a rogue device.
