 OpenVPN

Linux Security.com tells us about OpenVPN and interviews its funder James Yonan.

"OpenVPN uses the underlying cryptographic mechanism of SSL/TLS to secure a VPN connection, but the web analogy stops there. OpenVPN can best be understood as a portable, user-space VPN implementation which uses SSL/TLS as its underlying cryptographic engine. OpenVPN is able to use the same public key infrastructure as Apache, but is otherwise not related to the secure web. "
