Pros: Exhaustive and thorough
Cons: Some portions could be omitted

The book starts with a nice introduction of SSL VPN and explain the topics of OSI as well as DARPA models. It shows the diffrences between IPsec and SSL VPN in details and how the hubs and the private networks function.

In the second chapter it gives an overview how the SSL VPN works in a business model and why should organizations go for it. Then it goes deep into the working of the technology. It explains the SSL protocol and the reverse proxy technology.It describes the SSL remote access in a very thorough and exhaustive manner.

It then unravels the authentication and authorization , endpoint and serverside security ; how to go about embracing the technology based on the business requirement of an organization. It also educate the user thoroughly.The book ends with a brief overview on the future of SSL VPN technology.

The book would be particularly useful for organizations who are going for networking and IT professionals.

There wasn't a need to elaborate so much on DoD requirements in the fourth chapter.It slowed down the pace of the book a bit.
