This white paper provides a reference implementation of layered security policy enforcement created by integrating HP thin clients and Consolidated Client Infrastructure (CCI) blade PCs with SSL and IPSEC VPN solutions from Cisco. The combination of HP thin clients and Consolidated Client Infrastructure (CCI) blade PCs provides a very robust, secure, and cost-effective computing solution that can be applied to any network. Like any other networked component, it is important to examine security issues associated with their operation. This paper addresses key requirements to properly configure HP thin clients and blade PCs for use in a with CISCO VPN concentrators. Overviews of SSL and IPSEC VPN properties as well as usage models and known working implementations, are provided.
