Title : Secure, Remote Access over the Internet using IPSec
Author(s) : V. Gupta
Filename : draft-gupta-ipsec-remote-access-03.txt
Pages : 19
Date : 26-Oct-99
This memo describes the use of IPSec [KeAt98a-c] for secure access to
protected networks by authorized users connected to the Internet. An
example target scenario is a corporate employee on the road accessing
resources on his company's Intranet. It addresses firewall traversal,
user authentication, data confidentiality and the use of private
address spaces (the latter impacts routing and name lookups). A
comparison to other mechanisms such as those based on Layer-2
tunneling or session layer security, is also included.
This memo draws upon several ideas from [Dora97,Mosk98] and would not
have been possible without the contributions of the IETF working
groups on IP Security (IPSec) and Network Address Translation (NAT).

NOTE: The mail server at ietf.org can return the document in
MIME-encoded form by using the "mpack" utility. To use this
feature, insert the command "ENCODING mime" before the "FILE"
command. To decode the response(s), you will need "munpack" or
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.
Below is the data which will enable a MIME compliant mail reader
implementation to automatically retrieve the ASCII version of the
