Harness the power of the OpenVPN 2 network using Packt's new book
Packt is pleased to announce OpenVPN2 Cookbook, a new book which conjures 100 simple yet incredibly effective recipes which helps harness the power of the OpenVPN 2 network. Written by Jan Just Keijser, this book provides solutions for the most common problems and scenarios faced with OpenVPN.
OpenVPN is a free and open source software application that implements virtual private network (VPN) techniques for creating secure point-to-point or site-to-site connections in routed or bridged configurations and remote access facilities. It uses SSL/TLS security for encryption and is capable of traversing network address translators (NATs) and firewalls.
OpenVPN2 Cookbook explores all the advanced features of OpenVPN and even some undocumented options. It covers all the common networks, including point-to-point networks and multi-client TUN-style and TAP-style networks. Each technical aspect is broken down into short recipes that demonstrate solutions with working code, and then explains why and how that works.
All in all, this book helps one solve their OpenVPN problems, as well as helps configure OpenVPN on Linux, Windows and Mac OS X and set up a public key infrastructure (PKI) for use with OpenVPN, including X509 certificates, certificate revocation lists and intermediary certificate authorities.
System administrators and networking professionals who are interested in building secure VPNs using OpenVPN will find the book an interesting and beneficial read. This book is out now and available from Packt. For more information please visit: www.packtpub.com/openvpn-2-cookbook/book

In modern computer systems, privacy and security are mandatory. However, connections from the outside over public networks automatically imply risks. One easily available solution to avoid eavesdroppers’ attempts is SSH. But, its wide adoption during the past 21 years has made it a target for attackers, so hardening your system properly is a must.
Additionally, in highly regulated markets, you must comply with specific operational requirements, proving that you conform to standards and even that you have included new mandatory authentication methods, such as two-factor authentication. In this ebook, I discuss SSH and how to configure and manage it to guarantee that your network is safe, your data is secure and that you comply with relevant regulations.Get the Guide
