VPN (Virtual Private Network) is a method of providing a secure connection between a source (computer/server) and a destination host. The connection is secured not on the basis of employing a dedicated channel between the source and destination host, but instead the connection is secured over the public internet.
VPN is implemented in a hospital’s network to meet the Health Insurance Protection and Accountability Act (HIPAA) regulations. HIPAA is a directive that compels the medical centers and clinics to handle an individual’s electronic medical record securely; free from any nature of breaching.
In an effort to execute the VPN on a hospital’s network that complies with HIPAA, this project is focused on creating a network simulation with the VPN including other networking features. The VPN enabled network is accomplished using the GNS3 network simulation software. The data through the VPN tunnel are encoded and observed in Wireshark Software.
In the conclusion we will observe the state, unencrypted and encrypted, of the packets before and after, respectively, applying the VPN to the border routers through which the IP packets are traveling via the insecure Public Internet.
