Description

A virtual private network (VPN) is a network that uses the Internet, to provide remote offices or individual users with secure access to their organization's network.

A lot of people use VPNs but they do not really understand how it all works. It is not good! You NEED to know it, it is your security! Do you remember NSA and all issues around it? Do you want to make sure hackers will not get access to your files? Well... it is time to learn how you can make your connection secure and reliable.

This training is designed for beginners, however I included some more advanced labs as well. I discuss VPN protocols, encryption, hashes, certificates, remote and site to site vpns...

Learn about the advantages of VPN:

  • Improve security for data exchanges
  • Improve productivity
  • Functionality and resources shared from a corporate office
  • If data is intercepted, it will be encrypted and will not be readable to outside hackers

It is time to learn how VPNs really work! There are labs included which will show you how we can apply all these protocols in the real world. Enjoy!

Who this course is for:
  • From beginners, to advanced users, this course is perfect for all ability levels if you want to learn about VPNs. This course will add value to everyone's skill set
  • You want to learn about security, hackers and encryption standards
