Cisco WebVPN Solution
Because the implementation of an SSL VPN typically is unique on a vendor-by-vendor basis, I won’t go into the particulars as to how each different SSL VPN vendor implements SSL VPNs. However, since this book focuses on VPNs and Cisco products, this is a good chapter to introduce how Cisco implements SSL VPNs in their WebVPN solution. The remainder of this chapter will focus on the Cisco WebVPN solution. This part of the chapter will provide a brief overview, whereas Chapter 8, “Concentrator Remote Access Connections, with PPTP, L2TP, and WebVPN” will discuss how to set them up on Cisco VPN 3000 series concentrators. Chapter 18, “Router remote Access Connections,” discusses setup on Cisco routers.
