Why SSTP Protocol is best choice for a secure tunneling connection?
SSTP protocol creates a secure "tunnel" between the client and the server, and all data and traffic that passes through that tunnel are encrypted.
Similar to PPTP (Point-to-Point Tunneling Protocol), SSTP transports PPP data too, but through the SSL/TLS encrypted channel. Which means SSTP is significantly more security than PPTP because SSL/TLS layer provides traffic integrity checking, secure key negotiation and encryption.
- SSTP uses TCP port 443 - the same port used by HTTPS traffic.
- SSTP is often compared to OpenVPN for the high level of security both offering, and the fact that it can pass through multi-layer NAT firewalls in corporate network.
- SSTP encryption offers a decent level of security with SSL 3.0 and 256-bit encryption.
- SSTP is extremely easy to configure on platforms it is built into, including most popular WIN/MAC/UBUNTU desktop envionments and iPhone/iPad/Android Phone/Android Tablet mobile devices;
- The SSTP VPN protocol is almost impossible to block because it uses most popular TCP port 443 that HTTPS traffic uses, thanks for the technology bringing to us by Microsoft.
