Title : Security Framework for Provider Provisioned Virtual
Author(s) : L. Fang et al.
Filename : draft-fang-ppvpn-security-framework-01.txt
Pages : 32
Date : 2003-7-1
This draft addresses security aspects pertaining to Provider
Provisioned Virtual Private Networks (PPVPNs). We first describe the
security threats that are relevant in the context of PPVPNs, and the
defensive techniques that can be used to combat those threats. We
consider security issues deriving both from malicious behavior of
anyone and from negligent or incorrect behavior of the providers. We
also describe how these security attacks should be detected and
reported. We then discuss the possible user requirements in terms of
security in a PPVPN service. These user requirements translate into
corresponding requirements for the providers. In addition, the
provider may have additional requirements to make its network
infrastructure secure and meet the VPN customerĘs expectations.
Finally, we define how these user requirements apply to specific
PPVPN technologies, namely RFC2547 PPVPNs, Virtual Router PPVPNs,
IPSec VPNs, and Layer 2 PPVPNs.

MIME-encoded form by using the "mpack" utility. To use this
feature, insert the command "ENCODING mime" before the "FILE"

a MIME-compliant mail reader. Different MIME-compliant mail readers
exhibit different behavior, especially when dealing with
"multipart" MIME messages (i.e. documents which have been split
up into multiple messages), so check your local documentation on
how to manipulate these messages.
