DPI and VPNs: It's obfuscated ...

Virtual private networks (VPN), such as Psiphon, TOR and NordVPN, and related obfuscation techniques use various obfuscation techniques, including encryption and dynamic IP addresses, to ensure the security and privacy of data. The same techniques, inadvertently, create huge blind spots in network monitoring, leaving the network open to attacks and abuse. This article assesses how next-gen DPI engines R&S®PACE 2 and R&S®vPACE, via a rich repository of VPN signatures, identify VPN services and deliver application and threat awareness.
