Join Mike Chapple for an in-depth discussion in this video VPNs and VPN concentrators, part of CompTIA Security+ (SY0-401) Cert Prep: Network Security.
- Virtual Private Networks, or VPNs,…provide two important network security functions…to IT administrators.…First, they allow the secure interconnection…of remote networks,…such as connecting branch offices…to a corporate headquarters…or to eachother.…Second, they provide mobile workers with a mechanism…to securely connect from remote locations…back to the organization's network.…VPNs work by using encryption to create a virtual tunnel…between two systems over the internet.…
Everything that enters one end of the tunnel is encrypted,…and then, it is decrypted when it exits the the other end…of the tunnel.…From the users perspective,…the network appears to function normally,…but if an attacker gains access to traffic…between the two secure endpoints,…all they see is encrypted information…that they can't read.…VPNs require an endpoint on the remote network…that accepts VPN connections.…Many different devices may serve as VPN endpoints,…such as a firewall, router,…server, or a dedicated VPN concentrator.…
All of these approaches provide secure VPN connections,…
