Creating a Router-to-Router VPN with RSA Keys

Problem

You want to create an encrypted VPN between two routers using RSA keys.

Solution

As in Recipe 12.3, we will use IPSec Transport mode and a GRE tunnel for this encrypted router-to-router connection:

Router1#configure terminal
Enter configuration commands, one per line.  End with CNTL/Z.
Router1(config)#crypto key pubkey-chain rsa
Router1(config-pubkey-chain)#addressed-key 172.16.2.1
Router1(config-pubkey-key)#address 172.16.2.1
Router1(config-pubkey-key)#key-string
Enter a public key as a hexidecimal number ....
Router1(config-pubkey)#30819F30 0D06092A 864886F7 0D010101 05000381 8D003081 89028181 00EB0AB2
