What is an SSL VPN? A Secure Socket Layer Virtual Private Network (SSL VPN) lets remote users access Web applications, client-server apps, and internal network utilities and directories without the need for specialized client software. SSL VPN’s provide safe communication for all types of device traffic across public networks and private networks.
Most noticeably, SSL VPN uses SSL protocol and its successor, Transport Layer Security (TLS), to provide a secure connection between remote users and internal network resources. Today, this SSL/TLS function exists ubiquitously in modern web browsers.

This takes data security to a whole new level. When you use an SSL VPN, you see an ‘s’ added to your ‘http’ address as it becomes ‘https’ i.e. http-secure’.
OpenVPN is an SSL VPN and as such is not compatible with IPSec, L2TP, or PPTP. The IPSec protocol is designed to be implemented as a modification to the IP stack in kernel space, and therefore each operating system requires its own independent implementation of IPSec. By contrast, OpenVPN's user-space implementation allows portability across operating systems and processor architectures, firewall and NAT-friendly operation, dynamic address support, and multiple protocol support including ...
