In addition to the most popular VPN topologies and scenarios, the ebook contains also some special cases for which you will not find information easily anywhere else. See the "Contents" Section for more information.
VPN Types and Topologies Covered
The book will teach you how to Configure Site-to-Site VPNs, Hub-and-Spoke VPNs, Remote Access VPNs and Full Mesh (DMVPN) topologies. The protocols and technologies covered are IPSEC, GRE with IPSEC, Virtual Tunnel Interface (Static VTI and Dynamic VTI), DMVPN, PPTP, Anyconnect SSL VPN etc.

This eBook will teach you how to configure and implement almost any Cisco VPN scenario on Cisco IOS Routers and on Cisco ASA Firewalls (newest version 9.x and above and for all ASA 5500 and ASA 5500-X models).
I have tried to include the most important and commonly found VPN topologies that you will find in real world networks. Also, I have included several scenarios which are somewhat infrequent or unusual to encounter and they are also a little bit difficult to configure. These include configuration of VPN Failover using Backup ISP, site-to-site VPN with duplicate subnets, VPN Hairpinning, Active Directory authentication for remote access, remote access using Anyconnect SSL VPN, DMVPN etc.
Here are some of the topics that we will be covering:
|Policy-Based (IPSEC) and Route-Based VPNs (Comparison and Applications)|
|IPSEC VPN Basic Theory|
|Practical Applications of each VPN Technology|
|Comparison Between Various VPN Technologies|
|Configuration of Site-to-Site and Hub-and-Spoke IPSEC VPN on Cisco Routers|
|Configuration of Remote Access Using IPSEC VPN Client on Cisco Routers|
|Configuration of Route-Based VPNs using GRE with IPSEC Protection|
|Configuration of Route-Based VPNs using VTI (Virtual Tunnel Interface) with IPSEC|
|Configuration of Route-Based VPNs using Static VTI and Dynamic VTI|
|Configuration of Dynamic Multipoint VPN (DMVPN) on Cisco Routers|
|Point-to-Point Tunneling Protocol (PPTP) on Cisco Routers|
|Configuration of Site-to-Site and Hub-and-Spoke IPSEC VPN on Cisco ASA Firewalls|

|Configuration of Remote Access Using Anyconnect SSL VPN on Cisco ASA Firewalls|
|ASA Configuration for Remote Access VPN Authentication using Microsoft Active Directory|
|ASA Configuration for Remote Access VPN Authentication using External AAA Server|
|ASA Configuration for Remote Access VPN Authentication using RSA Server|
From my practical experience I have encountered also several special cases and scenarios which I've included in the ebook:
|Site-to-Site and Hub-and-Spoke VPNs with Sites Having Dynamic Public IP Address|
|Hub-and-Spoke and Remote Access VPNs on Same Device|
|Hub-and-Spoke VPN using DVTI and SVTI with Routers|
|Using Dynamic Routing Protocols (EIGRP) in Hub-and-Spoke networks with Routers|
|Restricting and Controlling IPSEC VPN Traffic Between two sites|
|Enable Communication Between Spokes in a Hub-and-Spoke VPN on ASA (VPN Hairpinning)|
|Allow Remote Users to Access Spoke Sites on ASA (VPN Hairpinning)|
|Site-to-Site IPSEC VPN With Failover Using Backup ISP|
|Site-to-Site IPSEC VPN With Duplicate Subnets (2 cases)|
|Site-to-Site IPSEC VPN Between Cisco Router and ASA|
|Remote Access Authentication Using Microsoft Active Directory, RADIUS, RSA|

Who Will Benefit From This Book
I remember building my first site-to-site IPSEC VPN back in 2000 using two Cisco PIX 501 firewalls. I was impressed when communication was established between two private LAN networks over the Internet. Since then, I have designed, configured and managed hundreds of VPN implementations using Cisco Routers and PIX/ASA firewalls. This eBook therefore includes all of my working experience with Cisco VPN technology for more than a decade.
Since this ebook covers also some VPN theory, comparisons between different VPN technologies, practical applications of each VPN type etc (in addition to the practical step-by-step configuration instructions), I believe that it will be beneficial for a range of professionals such as:
|Cisco ASA Firewall Administrators|
|Cisco Network and Router Administrators|
|Network Security Engineers/Designers|
|IT Security Consultants|
|Cisco Networking Freelancers|
|Companies offering Network Implementation and Support Services|
|Any Cisco Network Engineer|

Our Customers About Us
I picked up the new ebook yesterday and I haven't put it down for more than 20 minutes. I am a twenty year veteran and I find your guides are the best reference when I am explaining concepts to staff and junior engineers. I have instructed all my staff to pick up your guide if they really want to understand VPNs in practical context.
Your scenarios are on point and provide for a clear understanding of what to apply and how to apply it. Thanks again for this additional contribution. I look forward to an ACS ebook.
Excellent ebook. Very detailed information. It is clear, precise, and easy to understand. I have a task to replaced our pix firewall with hundreds of vpn connections and the ebook gave me the understanding of what I was doing and helped me with the CLI.
Once gain a an execellent reference guide. I've been working with CISCO 871 and then CISCO ASA 5510s over the past 5 years and finally after reading this I have really begun to understand what certain Options mean and how they work.
Ben Tompkins, mobico.biz
This book was very well written and has allowed me to learn much more when it comes to VPN's. Thanks so much. Are you going to write more material based on the newer IOS 9.1?
I have both the ASA and the VPN books. Harris has a way of making a complex technology look simple. Thank you so much for sharing your knowledge. I would love to see you do something on MPLS VPN and BGP in the future.
Love your e-books. I followed the step by step ASA configuration in the Cisco VPN Configuration Guide and it saved my bacon on my first site to site IPSEC VPN tunnel set up, as I knew it would.
The Cisco world is difficult and confusing to learn. Unless you do it *every day* it's hard to remember what is needed. Your books make this a lot easier when less experienced people such as myself are called upon to administer Cisco equipment. Thank you and I am very happy with my purchase.
The Cisco VPN Configuration Guide is great. I am relatively new to VPN setups and configurations and found your ebook quite informative with good diagrams and examples as well as excellent format overall. Interesting to read and follow the practical examples. Well Done.
