The presentation discusses the six specific technical threats that a VPN should protect against and the approach taken to test various vendors in the space.
- The VPN should prevent sniffing and protect against DNS meddling attacks
- It should protect against spoofed websites and responder attacks
- IPv6 susceptibility should be the same for hosts on a Wi-Fi network and those on the corporate network
- Standard equivalent configurations were created to compare vendors in the context of the identified threat scenarios
- The research question is how much protection enterprise VPN technologies provide against common and realistic threats
The presentation highlights the importance of combining different solutions to address cybersecurity threats. VPNs alone cannot do the job, and it is crucial to understand the threat landscape and how to address these issues. The six specific threat scenarios identified in the presentation demonstrate the need for a comprehensive approach to cybersecurity. The approach taken to test various vendors in the space provides valuable insights into the effectiveness of different VPN solutions. Overall, the presentation emphasizes the importance of staying up-to-date with the latest research and testing to ensure the security of enterprise networks.
