How to secure an SSL VPN with one-time passcodes and mutual authentication

  View Printable Version 
SecurityHowtoForge's How to secure an SSL VPN with one-time passcodes and mutual authentication explains that "SSL-based VPNs were designed to eliminate the need for complex configurations on the user's PC. ... In particular, a man-in-the-middle attack can intercept SSL-encrypted traffic, rendering SSL-based VPNs useless - even if it's protected by a typical one-time password system. The man-in-the-middle can easily feed the one-time password into the SSL-based VPN within the alloted time. In order to thwart this attack, mutual authentication is required. In this document, we will show how to configure the WiKID Strong Authentication System to provide strong, mutual authentication for SSL-Explorer."
