Vyatta NOS documentation

Learn how to install, configure, and operate Vyatta Network Operating System (Vyatta NOS), which helps to drive our virtual networking and physical platforms portfolio.

Executive summary

This white paper will help you to deploy or migrate to an IPsec-based solution, in preference to OpenVPN.

OpenVPN is deprecated in Vyatta NOS, since the 1908 release. We will remove support in a future release.

In this white paper we provide:

  • An overview of the Vyatta NOS IPsec VPN solution
  • Some examples of IPsec clients and their associated configurations
  • An example of a Vyatta NOS IPsec server configuration

This information will help you to migrate from OpenVPN to IPsec — whether you use a traditional remote access or a site-to-site solution.

As the network security landscape changes, the network perimeter expands, and adoption of cloud services grows, security becomes ever more important. So, we will continue to extend the Vyatta NOS IPsec functionality, performance and scale.
