Do I need Cert from Verisign

Unanswered Question
Feb 20th, 2009


We use Cisco VPN 3000 for remote access using VPN client. Do I really need to use Cert from Verisign for my public interface? We don't use WebVPN but even though we use do we really need that cert? Please advice.



I have this problem too.

Well known trusted vendors like Verisign are "needed" if you use webvpn or ssl connections to your CVPN only if you need to have your VPNC certified as a trusted device, in your case since your concentrator is not using webvpn nor ssl and you are only using VPN Client, you don't really need a certificate at all. Unless your vpn clients start authenticating using PKI (in which case you would not need a Verisign cert either)

Thanks for your quick response and advice. That's what I thought but not 100% sure.
