Debian Administration published an article
on how to simplify VPN (Virtual Private Network) authentication
Upper Darby, PA 15 November 2007 LinuxForce (www.LinuxForce.net) announced today that Debian Administration
has published a technical article it submitted on how to simplify VPN
(Virtual Private Network) authentication management with FOSS (Free and
Open Source Software).
The article reviews the state of the art in FOSS VPN technology and then
documents how to integrate and simplify VPN authentication management
with a Public Key Infrastructure or PKI.
"The VPN capabilities of the Linux operating system are world class,"
said CJ Fearnley, President and CEO of LinuxForce. "However, the
information needed to configure these sophisticated subsystems is not
widely available. By publishing these technical details, LinuxForce has
demonstrated that VPN servers built on Debian GNU/Linux are not only
maintainable across major operating system releases (one of Debian's
unique and industry leading benefits), but flexible and functional beyond
what is possible with commercial alternatives."
The Debian Administration article, which is entitled, "Scalable Public
Key Infrastructure for both OpenSWAN and OpenVPN" may be found on-line at
