How the hell did nobody rebel against this? Who the hell thought "Yeah that's a good idea, go ahead and implement it"?
I bet you can type faster than characters appear on the screen on the endpoint.
jinx1483yIs this mayhaps a company ranging sowhere between red and yellow? ;)
Because everyone knows that the more layers of the same security you wrap things in, the better. You gotta think vertically, not laterally when it comes to multi-factor authentication!
I love that the end termination point is a user-friendly GUI. I can imagine the creator thinking they are so smart for providing such convenience yet with such security.
They probably used to scan the internet for SOCKS5 proxies and build their own proxy chains for kicks.
Kruzifix1533yThis seems to be a common disease of companies with paranoid customers. The bigger the companies, the more they force to use their standards. If now a big company supports an other big company the possibility is very high, that they also use external IT-services additional to their internal IT-departments. So the snake of tunnels and funny things between grows up to several limbs of bullshit.
The worst I knew were banking-companies or automotive industries like Volkswagen or General Motors. They've separate RSA-SecureIDs for Hotlinestaff and even their own VPN-Software running, which requires very special systemsettings on both sides. Took me several minutes to suppport (if I could reach em at all).
We can't do anything about that. Its annoying every time.
Those tunnels remind me on that human centerpede thing horror movie...
