Course Overview
HI everyone, I'm Dan Lachance, and welcome to my course, VPNs and Wireless Networks. Both of these technologies are convenient, and they're widely used, but they do come with risks. The key is securing their configuration and use so that we can manage these VPN and wireless risks. Some of the major topics that we're going to cover include the configuration of L2TP/IPsec and SSL VPNs. We'll also identify wireless network vulnerability and mitigations, we'll talk about how to scan for Bluetooth devices, and we'll see how we can crack a Wi-Fi WPA2 network using a dictionary attack. By the end of this course, you'll understand how to configure and secure VPNs and wireless networks in accordance with organizational security requirements. I hope you'll join me to learn about VPNs and wireless networks here at Pluralsight.
