DAMA will continue to be our governing body and we intend to remain affiliated to the shared values of training and exposure to all things data management. Our goal is to promote the world of enterprise data management in Portland metro and SW Washington.
Daniel Lenski is one of the main developers of OpenConnect, an open-source VPN client which can connect to all of the aforementioned VPNs using a common interface (with several others in development). In this talk, he will explain in detail how modern client-server VPNs work, in terms of authentication, encrypted tunneling, Internet protocol routing, and client roaming. He will illustrate how the operation of a VPN can be reverse-engineered and reimplemented in OpenConnect, using an implementation of PAN GlobalProtect as an example.
