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

With all the industry talk about the benefits of Linux on Power and all the performance advantages offered by its open architecture, you may be considering a move in that direction. If you are thinking about analytics, big data and cloud computing, you would be right to evaluate Power. The idea of using commodity x86 hardware and replacing it every three years is an outdated cost model. It doesn’t consider the total cost of ownership, and it doesn’t consider the advantage of real processing power, high-availability and multithreading like a demon.
This ebook takes a look at some of the practical applications of the Linux on Power platform and ways you might bring all the performance power of this open architecture to bear for your organization. There are no smoke and mirrors here—just hard, cold, empirical evidence provided by independent sources. I also consider some innovative ways Linux on Power will be used in the future.Get the Guide
