Describe best practices for using a firewall

Make sure you post your primary response and then respond 


One of the ways businesses provide secure access to their network (or a subset of their network) to remote (or mobile) users is to use virtual private networks (VPNs). VPNs allow users to connect securely (over an encrypted link) to a network. For this discussion:

Discuss the goal(s) of a VPN

Describe different types of VPNs (hardware or software based)

Discuss how the use of a VPN may support BYOD (bring your own device)

List several commonly available (open source) VPNs

Describe best practices for using a VPN
