If you implement IPSec, my experience (as of 6 months ago) with IPSec is
that it works great, as long as you use the same implementation on all
host. IPSec isn't a hard "standard" yet therefore different
implementations may not have compatibility, and if they do have
compatibility it is kind of a "hack job". I used FreeSwan.
Like I said above, use the same implementation and same version on all
hosts and you should be fine.
Of course you will set up a CA Hierarchy so you can revolk people from
