Design, Concepts, Implementation

Virtual Private Networks (VPNs) make it possible to interconnect company sites via public IP networks and enable mobile users to dial in into their corporate networks. To achieve this aim, there are several VPN concepts which are discussed in this course in detail. A further focus is on making VPNs secure. The course will enable the participants to assess the pros and cons of various types of IP-based VPNs and to perform the design and implementation by themselves.

Course Contents

• Site-to-Site VPNs with IPv4 and IPv6
• GRE and Further Layer 3 Tunnel Protocols
• Layer 2 Tunnel Protocols for Remote Access VPNs
• Authentication and Authorization
• Voluntary Tunneling and Compulsory Tunneling
• Security in IP VPNs
• Encryption and Data Integrity
• IPsec for Site-to-Site VPNs
• Encapsulating Security Payload (ESP) and Authentication Header (AH)
• IKEv2
• IPsec for Remote Access VPNs
• SSL for Remote Access VPNs

 Each participant will receive the comprehensive course documentation of the ExperTeach Networking series in German language. Optionally, we provide the printed version or an ExperTeach e-book.
