  Authenticating the client (cont)
  Examples authentication methods
  IPSec: Shared keys, X.509 Certificates
  SSH: Linux password (/etc/shadow, LDAP, etc), SSH PubKey/Identity
  SSL: X.509 Certificate
  PPTP: Shared key
  AKA client password
  Any authentication system requires that you have some exchange of authentication information ahead of time.
