A thorough and complete review of VPN technologies, as implemented in Cisco infrastructure, Deal’s The Complete Cisco VPN Configuration Guide, is arranged as a 23 chapter step-by-step technology review and one chapter of bonus case studies.
The 40 page case study at the end of the book demonstrates the book’s material in a concise, simple and easy to follow way and its compactness will make it useful for an engineer who has general ideas about VPN, yet needs to get a site running quickly. This chapter can be read without a full understanding of the remainder of the text, productively.
The rest of the text is arranged into five parts: VPNs, Concentrators, Clients, IOS Routers and PIX Firewalls. The first part is a good attempt at VPN technology review. The presentation of the technologies in the part is generic enough to appeal to a wide audience of security professionals. The arrangement of the subject into chapter 1 on VPN overview, chapter 2 on fundamental VPN technologies, chapter 3 on IPSec, 4 on PPTP and L2TP and 5 on SSL VPN, is one of the better classification and treatments of VPN technologies I have seen lately.
