Abstract: Virtual Private Network (VPN) provides security by encrypting and decrypting data that passes through a VPN connection; it does not offer protection from viruses or other malware. A VPN is basically a private network inside a public network. The core idea of this technology is to transmit data packages on the tunnel that can be formed by different tunneling protocols. Antivirus is designed to detect and remove viruses from computers and also protect against a variety of threats and malicious software’s such as Trojan horses, worms and etc. And antivirus does not offer protection from intruders and hackers. In our project, we proposed an integrated security system for home users by integrating antivirus with VPN. Using this, we can provide security from both internal (Antivirus) and external (VPN) layers. The aim of this project is to provide an integrated system for the home users that will protect them from intruders and other viruses.
Keywords: Antivirus, VPN, Tunneling, L2TP and PPTP protocols, Personal System Security, Encryption and Decryption.
Security is one of the biggest challengers in today’s interconnected world. As soon as your PC is connected to the Internet, you are being targeted by unlimited number of malicious programs, viruses, hackers and other unknown new threats appearing every day . Not only this but also the information you send and received might be intercepted, read and even altered.
The field of network security is a very dynamic and highly technical field dealing with all aspects of scanning, hacking and securing systems against intrusions. There is an increasing demand nowadays to connect internal networks from distant locations. Users often need to connect an internal private networks over the Internet (which is by nature insecure) from home, hotels, airports or from other external networks.
