i love the concept of L2 VPNs; so pure in theory.
(AppleTalk and IPX over WAN? no problem!)

in practice they need a lot of careful implementation and
configuration.  the attack surface for tap vs. tun is very different;
many services handling broadcast traffic assume a trusted local
network environment.

all of the security features listed on the wiki are related to
transport / authentication rather than endpoint service
considerations.  this should be remedied.

looks interesting! perhaps i can play around with it soon...


best regards,
