VoIP and IPSec
Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
There are several problems with getting Voice over IP (VoIP) protocols to work through Firewalls and Network Address Translators (NAT). Many Internet drafts discuss the issues and different solutions are suggested. One solution is to use Virtual Private Networks (VPN) for VoIP transport, which is explored in this thesis.
The standard architecture used for implementing VPNs is the Internet Protocol Security Protocol (IPSec). IPSec and NAT have some fundamental incompatibilities and are hard to get to work together. Certain set-ups are feasible to get to work through proper configuration and the right use of protocols and modes. For certain scenarios though, new mechanisms are needed. Such mechanisms are proposed in different Internet drafts and these are discussed in this report.
The solution discussed in this thesis includes transporting VoIP over IPSec. This solution solves some problems, introduces some new and put higher requirements on network configuration.
