there are many options for creating vpn tunnels using ssh. remote port forwading, local port forwarding, and even creation of tun interfaces with the "-w" switch. During this hack we will try to craete an "appliance" vm that can be used as a sshvpn concentrator inside an openstack cloud. We then will measure the throughput of the different tunnels we create varying their encryption options to quantify the possible throughput of the sshvpnconcentrator
This project is one of its kind!
