HTTPS v/s SSL VPN

Does https create any tunnel ? What is the diffenrence in working of SSL VPN and HTTPS ?If we are opening  secured website using SSL VPN ,will there be a 3 way handshake? Can some one please explain the difference between the two using packet flow or if possible wireshark.

HTTPS v/s SSL VPN

its not HTTPS v SSL.

HTTPS uses SSL as its mechanism to povide authenticity and confidentiality. when you take that same mechanism (SSL) and apply it to the exchange of any trafic and also add client authentication. it is called SSL VPN.

remember with SSL VPN the client will need to authenticate using certs as well, contrary to HTTPS were pretty much always there is only server side authentication.

HTTPS v/s SSL VPN

Hello,

Yes, SSL provides a way to authenticate and encrypt your traffic.

HTTPS uses SSL/TLS

For every TCP protocol there will be a three way handshake

You could try to check the data traffic on wireshark but will not be able to decode the traffic as it's encrypted, Unless you have the private-key you will not be able to use it
