You can have a quick overview of our questions about SDN and VPN users to gain a better understanding.

1. Q: What are the basic principles of SDP and VPN?

A: SDP operates on a zero-trust model, while VPN uses tunnel-based access.

2. Q: How do SDPs and VPNs differ in their security approach?

A: SDP adopts a dynamic security approach, whereas VPN has a static security approach.

3. Q: Are resources visible to all users within the network in both SDP and VPN?

A: In SDP, resources are only visible to authorized users. In contrast, resources are visible to anyone within the network in a VPN.

4. Q: Which is easier to scale, SDP or VPN?

A: SDP is easier to scale. VPN can be scaled but requires additional configuration.

5. Q: How do SDP and VPN compare in terms of performance?

A: SDP is optimized for speed, while VPN can be slower due to encryption processes.

6. Q: What are the setup requirements for SDP and VPN?

A: SDP has a complex setup but is easy to manage. VPN has an easy setup but requires hands-on management.

7. Q: Which integrates more easily with modern apps, SDP or VPN?

A: SDP integrates easily with modern apps, whereas VPN may need additional setup for integration.

8. Q: What is the role of zero trust in SDP and VPN?

A: Zero trust, emphasizing “never trust, always verify,” is fundamental to SDP. Unlike VPN, it involves continuous identity verification, which trusts the user after initial authentication.

9. Q: How does an SDP verify a user's identity?

A: An SDP enforces identity verification at every step, checking the user’s context like location and device, before granting access to specific resources.

10. Q: What is the benefit of combining a VPN and SDP?

A: Combining a VPN and SDP offers a layered security approach. The VPN establishes a secure tunnel, and the SDP ensures that each user and device is verified before granting granular access to resources.
