OpenVPN TCP Client Detection

Info Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 3176

Synopsis

The remote client is running the OpenVPN TCP Client.

Description

The remote client is running the OpenVPN TCP Client. A VPN (Virtual Private Network) allows remote users to connect to an internal network as if they were local users. A VPN that allows split-tunneling will essentially serve as a bridge between the remote network and the internal network. Special care should be taken to ensure that remote VPN clients connect securely and do not introduce an unacceptable level of risk to the internal computing environment.

Solution

Ensure that the VPN is acceptable with respect to corporate guidelines and policies.
