So I may assume that your answer to my question "Can you point me to a resource that would provide more information to clarify your point of view?" is...."no". Thank you for taking the time to write in this discussion.

comment Prevent network users from creating an unauthorized outgoing VPN connection to avoid network policies
So if I were connected to your network, you're saying that you have a security policy in place that wouldn't prevent me from using a VPN tunnel undetected to download pirated content from a torrent site that has a nice juicy virus? And once I did it would present no danger? Or are you saying that you would just trust me to follow your AUP? I am just trying to wrap my head around the idea that a user having the ability to skirt network policy unchecked and undetected is NOT a vulnerability. Can you point me to a resource that would provide more information to clarify your point of view?

"For the dishonest techies, look for long open sessions, unusually high amounts of encrypted traffic, or after-hours communications to/from machines in the end-user networks." - Can you make suggestions about software to monitor for these criteria?

My question was very specific and didn't give enough information to form an opinion about my security policy. This vulnerability showed up during my own testing and odds are if I can do it someone else can too and I wanted to get more information to see if it can be stopped or detected.

Is there anyway to detect this traffic? Does this not present a substantial network vulnerability?
