I am looking for the equivalent of a network-based VPN solution - in terms of functionality -- but SSL-based so that a clien tis not necessary.
So, with network VPN, a client establishes a session with a concentrator, which terminates the VPN connection, then the client is authenticated, and then assigned a local IP address from the LAN pool.
I want all that functionality, but in the form of SSL. So, what I am envisioning is opening a browser, entering an IP address of the SSL appliance that will terminate the connection, then get authenticated and assigned an address. Hopefully, I can get the SSL appliance to do local authnetication and local DHCP services, because the company does not own separate aaa or AD servers, nor do they have a DHCP server.
So, does this sort of SSL solution exist?
