—This paper aims to introduce IPSec protocol, including its architecture, protocols family and implementations. We propose a performance evaluation setup which allows IPSec implementers to evaluate their IPSec implementation. IPSec as it is known as a set of protocols that work together, with utilizing multiple components in the IPSec architecture to serve one purpose, which is securing the internet Protocol (IP) packets. Security services provided by IPSec in general include: confidentiality, integrity check and authenticity of the data. Since measuring the performance can vary and this variation would end up in inconsistent measuring. This paper represents a good methodology to test IPSec performance and introduces a powerful IPSec architecture that utilizes multi-tunnels.
