Review:

Virtual Private Networks (VPNs) take advantage of the Internet's low-cost data communications capabilities by sending network traffic (internal network traffic, of the sort traditionally sent over private data links) through the public data cloud. The money savings, however, comes with the need to make sure that the potentially sensitive information is properly protected during its trip through open channels. Virtual Private Networks: Technologies and Solutions examines this engineering challenge in heavily researched and thickly referenced detail, providing network architects with tons of information about the problems that exist, the technologies that have been developed to solve those problems, and the products vendors offer to implement those technologies.

Authors Ruixi Yuan and Timothy Strayer take a scholarly approach: Each topic is introduced, and new terms described, as the functions of each piece in VPN systems are explained. Books and papers relevant to the topic are referenced frequently, along with standards documents, and the book uses pseudocode and mathematical expressions to explain encryption and authentication. If you study the book--along with the other publications-carefully, you'll be rewarded with a deep understanding of how to build a good VPN. --David Wall

Topics covered: The state of the art in virtual private networks (VPNs), with special coverage of tunneling (via PPTP, L2F, L2TP, IPsec, and MPLS), the IPsec protocol, authentication, public key infrastructure (PKI), gateways, and clients. VPNs for static links as well as for remote access solutions are covered.

From the Back Cover:

Virtual private networks have become an essential part of today's business networks, as they provide a cost-effective means of assuring private internal and external communications over the shared Internet infrastructure. Virtual Private Networks: Technologies and Solutions is a comprehensive, practical guide to VPNs. This book presents the various technology components, concrete solutions, and best practices you need to deploy and manage a highly successful VPN.

Readers will find an overview of fundamental VPN concepts and architectures, followed by an in-depth examination of advanced features and functions such as tunneling, authentication, access control, VPN gateways, VPN clients, and VPN network and service management. Specific topics covered include:

  • IPsec, featuring the Authentication Header, Encapsulating Security Payload, Internet Key
  • Exchange, and implementation details
  • PPTP, L2F, L2TP, and MPLS as VPN tunneling protocols
  • Two-party and three-party authentication, including RADIUS and Kerberos
  • Public key infrastructure (PKI) and its integration into VPN solutions
  • Access control policies, mechanisms, and management, and their application to VPNs
  • VPN gateway functions, including site-to-site intranet, remote access, and extranet
  • Gateway configuration, provisioning, monitoring, and accounting
  • Gateway interaction with firewalls and routers
  • VPN client implementation issues, including interaction with operating systems
  • Client operation issues, including working with NAT, DNS, and link MTU limits
  • VPN management architectures and tunnel and security management
  • Outsourcing and service provider environments

The book concludes with a forward look at the future of VPNs that examines such issues as security and quality of service (QoS). VPN scenarios throughout the book demonstrate how to put the described techniques and technologies to work in a real-world Virtual Private Network.
