Hello Guys,

Can you please give me an idea if the http access to a switch is encrpypted? I just to verify that the communication between the browser and the switch will not be sniff. My main concern is the authentication where you use a username and password to the switch.

Thanks,
Aries

You don't get any encryption with http, just like telnet the password is sent clear text.

https is a better option. Cisco devices supports this.
turn on secure server using the command.

(config)#username <username> password <password>
(config)#ip http secure-server
(config)#ip http authentication local

hope this helps!
