Week 8 saw a continuation on network layer security. IPsec was discussed in detail throughout the lecture, specifically how the three objectives could be acheived:
During the week I had a look at some open source implementation that enable there objectives:
- Kerebos – http://web.mit.edu/kerberos/ (Authentication only)
- Ubuntu ipsec-tools tutorial – https://help.ubuntu.com/community/IPSecHowTo
- IPSec how-to – http://www.ipsec-howto.org/t1.html
Still working on getting a practical test run going, aiming to do some testing with Wireshark to demonstrate the effectiveness of IPsec.
