Is OpenVPN (SSL/TSL + User Auth) safe enought?

Hello everyone, this is my first post. This is a question ive been asking myself for some time.

Is OpenVPN (SSL/TSL + User Auth) safe enought?

Should i consider some of its options as critical? how many bits in its encription/keys/algorithms is good?


I use OpenVPN (SSL/TSL + User Auth) though I have no idea if it is “safe enough”.

I suspect a “high enough” level of encryption is sufficient, I use
DH Parameter Length 2048
Encryption Algorithm AES-256-GCM
Auth digest algorithm SHA256

It’s more likely my network has a mis-configuration than my network can be compromised by a lower level of encryption/security.

Cryptography is a whole field in itself, so unless the North Koreans are after you it should be ok :slight_smile:

Thanks! i dont think uncle kim is looking after me!

I will consider that a high enough level!
