Hi Mark,

 

            We use Cisco AnyConnect. It’s a great product and very easy for non-technical people to use.

We’ve used Nortel’s Contivity for many years.  They have been fine for Windows clients but less than ideal for Mac clients due to the need to purchase a third party client.    We began using SSL VPN via our Palo Alto FW’s for our Faculty earlier this year, largely because of the need for Mac clients and that has been working very well.   HTH.

Hi All,

Be very careful and specific re. what technology is employed in your VPN.

At Defcon 20, which wrapped up this weekend, a tool for cracking WPA2 with MS-CHAPv2, in under a day was released by MoxieMarlinSpike.

(Yes, you read that correctly: be very afraid...)

You can read more here:


And, here:


All is not lost, but, beware a false sense of "security". As a side note, and numerous, ironic twist, the "secure wireless" employed at Defcon itself used this technology--so it happens to the best of us.

Respectfully,

Meant "... humorous twist..." Apologies for the typo.

UNLV Evaluated both the Ciscso and Juniper Products.  We ended up going with Juniper (I think) because of it's flexibility and ease of use for end users.  Were still in the process of deploying for campus, but I believe were very happy with it thus far.

Message from shelf@westernu.edu

From a security standpoint, per the talk at Defcon, you may need to ask your vendor (Cisco, etc.) to change the setup of their VPN protocols, i.e., the recommendation should be that one should no longer use  MS-CHAPv2.

It is, ostensibly, your liability, and not the vendors'.

This should be especially true if you are dealing with patient data, student data, or any "company secrets" that you do not want compromised. 

I would ask the vendor to make the change to IPsec or OpenVPN today, as "script kiddies" tend to target those technologies that were shown vulnerabilities immediately following a Defcon conference.
