This week we focused on our main projects. I studied for my SANS GCIH certification while Dorothy added VPNs to her pfSense firewall project. I give a brief summery of the SANS 504 course and incident handling. I also talk about avoiding IDS detection and buffer overflows. Two topics covered in the 504 course. Dorothy goes over her research into VPNs. She talks about protocols, port numbers, VPN concentrates and more.
