Wireless Security and VPN
Hi! I was able to setup my wireless network on a blue interface on IPCop. What I did was turned off the DHCP on the Linksys router and allowed the IPcop box to provide IP addresses for wireless users. I also turned off the WEP Encryption on the router and for the wireless users to connect to the network, they will have to inform me so that I can add them up to the "blue acccess" on IPCop. Now my question is this. Is it really unsecure to disable WEP encryption on my Linksys router? I notice that eventhough the wireless users have IP address given by IPCop, they still won't be able to connect to the internet or access other networks such as green. They will only gain access if I put there MAC addresses on the "blue access" on IPCop. Is this too much vulnerable? If I have my WEP turned off, what are the chances that the wireless users will be able to connect to the green network? I don't know how IPCop handles blocking proxy port of the wireless users unless listed on the blue access. But it makes sense to me. Even if you were able to connect to the router, you can't do anything right? Now, can someone tell me if there are some security issues on what I did. If so, what are my options to harden the wireless security and secure my Green network? Is OpenVPN secure enough cause I also installed OpenVPN addon on IPCop to enable me to connect to our network even when I'm away. Do I have to worry more on my current setup? I just wish I can also have have an addon for IPCop to enable me to provide access levels to users, time-constraints and better authentication..
