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:
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!
We will talk about VPNs in general, discuss available options and why it is important to understand VPNs. Learn about site-to-site and remote vpns
Symmetric and asymmetric encryption, certificates and PKI. Learn how to make your connection secure by using a reliable and strong encryption protocol
We will discuss hashing: md5 and sha. Learn how to create an md5 hash and how secure these solutions are
We all know passwords are important, right? In this video we will discuss authentication options for VPNs including the Radius protocol.
A topic you have been waiting for! A password is not enough, we need a two-factor authentication solution. A lab is included showing you how we can authenticate using an app on a mobile phone
Check what you memorized from this section
There are two protocols that have been with us for ages. We will discuss why and how to use them
IPSEC is a framework that makes VPNs work. Learn what's inside and how it is built. It is a standard for most VPNs today
Learn about the new flavor of VPN - SSL - all you need is a web browser to connect to your network and have access to files, servers and documents
There are some open standard protocols available. In this video I will discuss OpenVPN shortly
Check what you memorized from this section
You will learn how to create a site-to-site VPN using a free tool - Teamviewer. A simple lab you can try at home
A more advanced lab - we are building an SSL Portal on a firewall (Cisco ASA). We are going to start from scratch
I will show you how to implement a very basic site-to-site vpn on two Cisco devices using a template. Full lab included. A great introduction to Cisco command line interface
I will show you how to implement a very basic site-to-site vpn on two Cisco devices using a template. Full lab included. In this video - implementation
A document that summarizes the most popular VPN protocols
We will summarize our training in this video.
A bonus video showing some great remote tools which can replace a VPN solution. I discuss Radmin, VNC and Teamviewer
A bonus video from my General Networking Training. There is a big chance you will have to open some ports if you have a VPN Server behind a Router. Learn how to start.
A bonus video - Dynamic DNS. You need a solution like that if you want to e.g. vpn into a network with a dynamic IP address. This vidfeo comes from the CCNA Real World Labs Training
