Modular bytemine manager architectur
The bytemine manager consists of two modules, which can be used independently from each other.
- User- and certificate management
- Control center
User- and certificate management
Traditionally one states, that user- and certificate management of a VPN should be detached from the network. Thinking of this statement this module of the bytemine manager has been implemented. User and certificate data can be either copied to the concentrator via SCP or exported to filesystem.
Existing user and certificate data can easily be imported using a wizard, either from filesystem or LDAP directory.
The Control center module is able to display current connection of OpenVPN concentrators. For each, in the bytemine manager configured, OpenVPN server the Control center module can be started seperately. Despite of displaying connection data (data transfer in- and outbound per user) status and log information of the OpenVPN concentrator are accessible.
Communication with the OpenVPN server is done via the Unix domain interface, which has been introduced in version 2.1RC13 of OpenVPN. Therefor the bytemine manager is calling a socket wrapper (shipped with the bytemine manager) using a Secure Shell connection. As a result the whole communication with a OpenVPN server is encrypted and using a secure authentication method (SSH with key-based authentication).
