There are many types of VPNs (Virtual Private Networks) available for use in today’s networks. One of these types involves use of the IPSec standard. Within IPSec, there are further options on ways to define your VPN. The actual building or construction of the IPSec VPN is very involved. The purpose of this paper is to detail, explain, and illustrate the specific processes that occur in creating an IPSec VPN tunnel. Some of the concepts and theory will also be explained.
