Name resolution, routing protocols, domains, services that are part of the real Internet — all can be eliminated without affecting IPSec operations. An example of a simplified lab can be a single router with two Ethernet interfaces configured with different network addresses. Connect a client system to one network and a target system to the other and configure them to play a part in the local network by assigning them a suitable IP address. The last step is configuring the gateway information so each system knows where to send packets that are not on the same network.

The goal is to fit the level of desired security to the business operations to a point where they level out. By defining a virtual horizontal line of accepted security, risks can be weighed against it to determine if the desired security posture is being met. As new vulnerabilities are discovered, the exposure of the company can be calculated by comparing the existing security of the environment to the complexity and type of threat. In some cases, the threat requires various levels of information to be obtained by the attacker before representing a serious threat to business information or processes.

In these examples, one sees that restrictions can be applied to several differentiating factors in the communication. The first example simply isolated the network and system and the protocol being used to communicate. In the second version, the specific layer 4 protocols and the service port were isolated. ) There are solutions that integrate the authentication process with access controls. Kerberos is an example. In Kerberos authentication, the user authenticates to a central system, a Key Distribution Center (KDC), and is ultimately provided a ticket that can be presented to a resource for access.
