Vpn networks kami

  1. 1. VIRTUAL PRIVATENETWORKS (VPN) Dr. Muazzam Khattak
  2. 2. Traditional Connectivity
  3. 3. What is VPN? Virtual Private Network is a type of private network that uses public telecommunication, such as the Internet, instead of leased lines to communicate. Became popular as more employees worked in remote locations. Terminologies to understand how VPNs work.
  4. 4. Private Networks vs. Virtual Private Networks Employees can access the network (Intranet) from remote locations. Secured networks. The Internet is used as the backbone for VPNs Saves cost tremendously from reduction of equipment and maintenance costs. Scalability
  5. 5. Remote Access Virtual Private Network(From Gartner Consulting)
  6. 6. Brief Overview of How it Works Two connections – one is made to the Internet and the second is made to the VPN. Datagrams – contains data, destination and source information. Firewalls – VPNs allow authorized users to pass through the firewalls. Protocols – protocols create the VPN tunnels.
  7. 7. Four Critical FunctionsAuthentication – validates that the data was sent from the sender.Access control – limiting unauthorized users from accessing the network.Confidentiality – preventing the data to be read or copied as the data is being transported.Data Integrity – ensuring that the data has not been altered
  8. 8. EncryptionEncryption -- is a method of “scrambling” data before transmitting it onto the Internet.Public Key Encryption TechniqueDigital signature – for authentication
  9. 9. Virtual Private Network• Operates at layer 2 or 3 of OSI model – Layer 2 frame – Ethernet – Layer 3 packet – IP• Tunneling – allows senders to encapsulate their data in IP packets that hide the routing and switching infrastructure of the Internet – to ensure data security against unwanted viewers, or hackers.
  10. 10. TunnelingA virtual point-to-point connectionmade through a public network. It transports encapsulated datagrams. Original Datagram Encrypted Inner Datagram Datagram Header Outer Datagram Data Area Data Encapsulation [From Comer] Two types of end points:  Remote Access  Site-to-Site
  11. 11. Four Protocols used in VPN PPTP -- Point-to-Point Tunneling Protocol L2TP -- Layer 2 Tunneling Protocol IPsec -- Internet Protocol Security Transport Mode Tunnel Mode SOCKS – is not used as much as the ones above
  12. 12. VPN Encapsulation of Packets
  13. 13. Types of ImplementationsWhat does “implementation” mean in VPNs?3 types Intranet – Within an organization Extranet – Outside an organization Remote Access – Employee to Business
  14. 14. Virtual Private Networks (VPN) Basic Architecture
  15. 15. Device Types• What it means• 3 types – Hardware – Firewall – Software
  16. 16. Device Types: Hardware • Usually a VPN type of routerPros Cons• Highest network throughput • Cost• Plug and Play • Lack of flexibility
  17. 17. Device Types: Firewall • More security?Pros Cons• “Harden” Operating • Still relatively costly•Cost-effective
  18. 18. Advantages VS.Disadvantages
  19. 19. Advantages: Cost Savings• Eliminating the need for expensive long- distance leased lines• Reducing the long-distance telephone charges for remote access.• Transferring the support burden to the service providers• Operational costs•
  20. 20. Advantages: Scalability Flexibility of growth Efficiency with broadband technology
  21. 21. DisadvantagesVPNs require an in-depth understanding ofpublic network security issues and properdeployment of precautionsAvailability and performance depends onfactors largely outside of their controlImmature standardsVPNs need to accommodate protocols otherthan IP and existing internal networktechnology
  22. 22. Applications: Site-to-Site VPNsLarge-scale encryption betweenmultiple fixed sites such as remoteoffices and central officesNetwork traffic is sent over thebranch office Internet connectionThis saves the company hardware andmanagement expenses
  23. 23. Site-to-Site VPNs
  24. 24. Applications: Remote Access Encrypted connections between mobile or remote users and their corporate networks Remote user can make a local call to an ISP, as opposed to a long distance call to the corporate remote access server. Ideal for a telecommuter or mobile sales people. VPN allows mobile workers & telecommuters to take advantage of broadband connectivity. i.e. DSL, Cable
  25. 25. Industries That May Use a VPN Healthcare: enables the transferring of confidential patient information within the medical facilities & health care provider Manufacturing: allow suppliers to view inventory & allow clients to purchase online safely Retail: able to securely transfer sales data or customer info between stores & the headquarters Banking/Financial: enables account information to be transferred safely within departments & branches General Business: communication between remote employees can be securely exchanged
  26. 26. Where Do We See VPNs Going in the Future?VPNs are continually being enhanced. Example: Equant NVAs the VPN market becomes larger, moreapplications will be created along with moreVPN providers and new VPN types.Networks are expected to converge tocreate an integrated VPN Improved protocols are expected, which will also improve VPNs.
  27. 27. Pop Quiz!Q.1VPN stands for…a) Virtual Public Network b) Virtual Private Network d)c) Virtual Protocol Network Virtual Perimeter Network
  28. 28. Pop Quiz! A.1VPN stands for…b) Virtual Private NetworkVPN stands for "Virtual Private Network" or "Virtual Private Networking." A VPN is aprivate network in the sense that it carries controlled information, protected by varioussecurity mechanisms, between known parties. VPNs are only "virtually" private,however, because this data actually travels over shared public networks instead of fullydedicated private connections.
  29. 29. Pop Quiz!Q.2What are the acronyms for the 3 most common VPNprotocols?
  30. 30. Pop Quiz! A.23 most common VPN protocols are…• PPTP• L2TP• IPsecPPTP, IPsec, and L2TP are three of todays most popular VPN tunneling protocols. Eachone of these is capable of supporting a secure VPN connection.
  31. 31. Pop Quiz!Q.3What does PPTP stand for?
  32. 32. Pop Quiz!A.3PPTP = Point-to-Point Tunneling Protocol !
  33. 33. Pop Quiz!Q.4What is the main benefit of VPNs compared todedicated networks utilizing frame relay, leasedlines, and traditional dial-up?a) better network performance b) less downtime on averagec) reduced cost d) improved security
  34. 34. Pop Quiz! A.4The main benefit of VPNs is…c) reduced costThe main benefit of a VPN is the potential for significant cost savings compared totraditional leased lines or dial up networking. These savings come with a certain amountof risk, however, particularly when using the public Internet as the delivery mechanismfor VPN data.
  35. 35. Pop Quiz!Q.5In VPNs, the term "tunneling" refers to b)a) an optional feature the encapsulation of packets inside packets of a differethat to create and maintain the virtualincreases network performance if it is turned on circuitc) the method a system d) a marketing strategy that involvesadministrator uses selling VPN products for very lowto detect hackers on the network in return for expensive service prices contracts
