Web Access Management and Single Sign-On

Contributed by Ronnie Dale Huggins

In the “old days” of computing, a user would sit down at his or her workstation, login to the desktop, login to their email system, perhaps pull up a thick client or two, login to those as well, and maybe access a couple of internal web pages, and again, login to those. Now take into account that all of these systems are likely handled by different support groups, so the user has to not only remember user IDs for all of these applications, they need to remember the password associated with these systems. All of these security silos eventually become an administrative nightmare and result in a decreased user experience. Costs associated with helpdesk calls for password resets also increase.

Creating VPN’s with IPsec

Contributed by Wilson Chance Hinchman

This paper will define the term VPN, explain for what and why VPNs are used. IPsec, which is vital to the functionality of VPNs will also be touched on. I will start by defining the term VPN, the acronym VPN stands for "Virtual Private Network”. This is an ambiguous term that gets thrown around a lot in the information technology industry. Many types of networks fall under the classification of virtual private network when taken out of context. For instance, frame relay networks, or private point to point WAN links could be considered virtual private networks.
