As part of the reorganization, Superior Health Care System Corporation will provide local and remote access to a corporate intranet for all employees. The organization will also have to implement an extranet to exchange information between our organization, insurance providers and other vendors. In addition, we will provide the ability for patients to connect to our website to make appointments, request prescription refills and make account payments. The CEO would like all of these networks and services designed using VPN technologies. In preparing for this transition, you need to configure and provide proof of concept for the following.
A site¬ to ¬site VPN will provide the extension of our WAN network. We will use a site¬ to ¬site VPN to connect business partners. In the past, a leased line or Frame Relay connection was required to connect to our partners. We want to save money and provide a more secure connection by replacing these dedicated WAN services with site¬ to¬ site VPNs.
You have been asked to use a network simulation tool (Packet Tracer) to configure a model point¬ to ¬point IPsec VPN connection between Superior Health Care System Corporation’s network and a local business partner “In Your Hands Insurance Group”. Test the connection and provide proof of its security, confidentiality and integrity.
The CEO has made it his priority to make the new Superior Health Care System Corporation reflect the 21st century workforce. He would like to see our employees have the ability to access critical information they need to perform their work available were ever they may be (at home, in a local physicians offices, or at a high tech diagnostics facilities). Remote¬ access VPNs are the only cost effective, secure solution. Remote¬ access VPNs can support the needs of our doctors, nursing staff and business office. Design and demonstrate the operation of remote¬ access VPNs using Packet Tracer simulator.
