Peering FAQ

What does Aviatrix encrypted peering do?

Aviatrix encrypted peering builds an encrypted tunnel between two VPC/VNet with a single click. In addition to building the encrypted connection, the Controller also programs the cloud infrastructure routing table so that you don’t have to.

The VPC and/or VNet can be across regions and across the cloud. The solution enables you to build an encrypted network. You can enable stateful firewalls on each VPC/VNet to add additional security measures.
