The University of Toronto is a large educational
institutional with over 70,000 students and 10,000
staff and faculty. For the past three years, we
have developed and implemented a ubiquitous VPN
service, based up on OpenVPN and FreeBSD. The service
has over 3000 active customers, with up to 35
simultaneous users. The system supports, Linux, Mac
OS X and Windows XP/Vista/2000 clients. Tools have
been developed to create a central CA which enables
users to log in to a secure server and get their
customized client, certificates and configuration.
The NSIS installer is used to generate the customized
windows installers. Similar packages are generated
for the various Unix based clients. Additional
WWW/PHP based tools, have been developed to monitor
and log usage of the service, using standard graphs,
alarms for excessive use and a certificate revocation
mechanism. The system has been integrated into the
local identity management system (Kerberos/LDAP)
in order to authorize and authenticate users upon
initiation and per session usage. All code is Open
Source and freely available.
