Best practices to secure out of bound management access

What are the best practices to secure Out Of Bound Management (OOBM) access?

I planning to put in an DSL link for OOBM. I have a console switch which supports SSH and VPN based on IPSec with NAT traversal. My questions are -

Is it secure enough?

Do I need to have a router/firewall in front of the console switch?

Im planing to put a Cisco 1841 router as an edge router. What do you think?

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Re: Best practices to secure out of bound management access

Hi,

You're going to have an OOB access via VPN?

This is pretty secure (if talking about IPsec)

An 1841 should work fine.

You can check the design recommendations here:

Chose the security section...

Hope it helps.

Federico.
