Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

Security Concept for VPN IPsec Site-to-Site Connections to Third Parties
by Schmalen, Daniel, M.S., California State University, Long Beach, 2018, 74; 10688606
Abstract (Summary)

VPN (Virtual Private Network) connections between two companies are a very common method to pair networks with each other to facilitate the access to specific resources for both sides of the connection. However, the security aspect for such a pairing has not been thoroughly researched either by academic or industrial organizations. Nevertheless, screening this topic from a security perspective is crucial to give companies a recommendation.

This thesis covers every key facet of such a VPN connection and therefore, all components are researched individually to discover the key findings for each part. Furthermore, the findings are applied to create a practical, enterprise-close security concept that is both complete and comprehensible.

The security concept may play a significant role in the overall understanding of the given use-case, a VPN IPsec (Internet Protocol Security) Site-to-Site connection to a third-party company, to avoid security leaks in the owner’s network. Furthermore, the VPN itself has to be secured against outsider adversaries such as eavesdroppers.
