tls – How does VPN prevent man in the middle at ISP level?

When man-in-the-middle is at the ISP level (or even before ISP), it seems they can do the handshake. Swap keys provide a forged or copied certificate. The only thing you wouldn't know is the private key. But it seems like they are the client for the endpoint server and the server for the victim, they could create two encryption / decryption chains and two shared secrets, and nobody would be wiser. I think I get it wrong because people say that a VPN would protect against it. So the basic question is how an HTTPS website certificate at ISP level protects from people in the middle.

Windows RDP and VPN from the inside

I have a rather strange problem and I'm not sure how to set it up properly.

I have 2 Windows servers in the cloud with RDP (I don't know the smartest, but I don't have room for physical servers). They are connected to each other via a vRack.
The connections from outside to the server are very limited – only a handful of external IPs are permitted. However, the Internet connection on this computer is also not available. This internal connection is used for database use.

I had the crazy idea of ​​installing a VPN client on it and connecting it to the outside world – thanks to that, I could access it on the internet.
But a second after I connect to the VPN, I lose all internal communication to that server (and external from the whitelist addresses).

The general scheme would look like this:

General network scheme

Now I want to be able to access Internet Form Server B while maintaining network restrictions for WAN. Is it even possible? I'm assuming that I have to create some strange static routes, but I'm not sure which direction and in which direction.

console – Slow start of PowerShell via VPN

I'm having a problem with the PowerShell startup speeds that I've been doing some analysis on.

When I start my laptop, PowerShell starts perfectly (start time <1 second, including loading 1,000 line profiles). When I start my company VPN (Check Point EndPoint), PowerShell takes about 6.5 seconds to start (terrible).

So I pulled all of mine $profile Put functions etc in a separate file and put them on C:Profile_Extras.ps1 to avoid getting into the network in any way (except the $Profile, but that's just one line that points to mine C:Profile_Extras.ps1 File).

PowerShell now takes 3.5 seconds to start. A big improvement, but still very bad, to open a console session (!) On a very fast / modern laptop.

cd $(Split-Path $Profile) brings me to:
Microsoft.PowerShell.CoreFileSystem::\ad.ing.netWPSNLPUD200024YA64UGHomeMy DocumentsWindowsPowerShell

When I leave the company VPN network, this data is still available (some kind of caching software is used so that I can refer to my network profile at H:). In this state, reloading PowerShell takes <1 second, which is good.

So my question is how can I tell PowerShell to redirect where to look for $ profiles. Is that a registry setting or something?

I also looked at a few other articles, but no help. Why is Powershell slow on my computer?

VPN Firewall Recommendations Web hosting talk

Hello, it has been a while since I am active here, but I hope that I can be much more active in the future (Moderators, please move this to the appropriate forum if this is not the case.)

We have a client in which all of its customers' traffic must be securely forwarded to our infrastructure via VPN. We are currently using a microtics that give us a headache. This is very surprising when you consider that it was recommended by some of the network engineers I spoke to. We dropped VPNs for no reason and sometimes the speed is very slow even though the traffic is light.

We are now looking for alternatives and I am recommended Barracuda and Sonicwall. I definitely prefer the Barracuda user interface over Sonicwall's, but I take a closer look at the statistics and Sonicwall seems to offer a lot more than Barracuda for the price. I've spoken to several vendors that work with Sonicwall and they either love it and it's the only thing they use or they hate it but I can't figure out why (again I wasn't a user interface fan).

We are currently testing the current setup, but the client has to go online sooner rather than later. On the client, site-to-site VPNs are set up for any client who has a hardware firewall in their office, and a software VPN client is set up for those who don't. Speed ​​is critical as they constantly transfer data and load times need to be fast. We have set up IPSEC tunnels that seem to do the trick, but again, the current configuration isn't the most stable, and I'd like to find a solution that delivers the performance they need before we scale.

What can you recommend and why? If you need additional information, please let me know. Even if you can recommend network hardware suppliers that I can reach, it would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks for your time!

Access Azure Local vLAN via IPSec VPN (USG20)

I have an Azure subscription, have created a Site2Site VPN, and can ping both locations.
Now I have created a new VLAN on my USG20 (Home LAN) and added Azure VPN Gateway as a remote network area. I cannot reach the VLAN computer through Azure and ViceVersa, only through my LAN. What should I do so that they can communicate with Azure and Azure comunicae?
Thank you very much, I searched the Internet, but all solutions do not work for me …

tls – How is site-to-site VPN better than SSL + IP whitelisting?

My company wants to move an internal web application to the cloud. The app only accepts SSL / TLS connections and requires that all users authenticate themselves through our single sign-on provider.

If a user wants to access this internal app remotely today, he connects to our company VPN. Therefore, it is currently planned to configure a location-to-location VPN connection between our office and the cloud provider.

My personal impression is that whitelisting the IP address of our office with our cloud provider basically offers the same level of security. Everyone tells me I'm wrong, but I don't give a convincing argument.

I think like this:

  1. Site-to-site VPN does not authenticate individual users or computers, but only guarantees that the data traffic only flows between two networks (our office and our cloud provider). If the source of traffic is restricted by its IP and the destination is authenticated by its valid SSL certificate, isn't it the same?
  2. The encryption provided by the VPN is redundant because we already use TLS.
  3. If anything, the VPN option is less secure because it can allow incoming connections from the cloud provider that we don't need or don't want.

The main argument I've heard is the refutation of point 1 because IP whitelists are not secure due to IP spoofing. I understand that IP spoofing is generally only used in DoS attacks and that an attacker cannot perform a TLS handshake while pretending his IP address (see this question for details).

Am I missing something here?
