Overview

A virtual private network (VPN) is a private data network that makes use of the public telecommunication infrastructure. It gives the user the same capabilities at much lower cost by using the shared public infrastructure rather than a private one. A VPN makes it possible to have the same secure sharing of public resources for data as already known from voice messages.

The operation and utilization of virtual private networks will be discussed both in theory and practicality, covering the technical aspects associated with encryption and digital certificates as well as the manner by which readers can create VPNs using readily available products from Microsoft, Cisco, Checkpoint and possibly other vendors.
* very hot topic - technology is increasing deployed by companies.
* covers technology to include theory, but shows readers through numerous examples 'how to use ' the technology.
* books currently published are very elementary or focused on technical issues and the IPSec headers and protocols and lack practical 'how-to' information.
* discusses the importance of VPNs as a service.
