No, they do not. Tunnel interfaces don't have media addresses assigned to them. In any case the address assigned to another interface, such as a virtual bridge for virtual machines, would different from your network card.

OpenVPN is in fact based on OpenSSL, and uses both client and server certificates to authenticate both sides. PPTP, SSTP and L2TP can be deployed in various modes, including modes with certificate-based authentication. Note that these protocols doesn't provide underlying encryption, which is provided by optional, associated IPSec layer. And IPSec can use ...

Unfortunatelly yes it'a still leaked even in incognito mode. In your case both your internal network IP-address and the VPN IP-address will be exposed. You can test it for example here: https://ipleak.net/ Chrome and Firefox leak this info even in Incognito/private. Although there is a fix: ...

Pros of OpenVPN: Strong encryption OpenVPN is known for having a strong encryption, which is considerably better against the NSA (National Security Agency). The OpenSSL encryption library supports a number of cryptographic algorithms including the AES which is known for almost no weakness at all. Highly reliable Besides being ...

WebRTC does not connect to another adapter WebRTC have a method to enumerate all local addresses, so it can employ a wide range of NAT tunneling. It does not force a connection to use any adapter. The connection itself is handled by the OS, and WebRTC cannot change the adapter in any way. Disable STUN/WebRCT system wide is not easily feasible WebRTC is a ...

It is not currently possible to bruteforce an SSH connection using only keys-based authentication. A VPN on top of an SSH connection does not therefore add substantial security. It would be better to concentrate on reducing the collateral effects of bruteforce attacks on your SSH connection (DoS and logs trashing would be the top ones), which is described ...

SSH and VPN provides basically the same encryption mechanisms. Let’s imagine they both provide the same security, and you configured them well. If an attacker is able to decrypt your VPN communication in a reasonable time, it probably means that he can do the same thing for SSH in roughly the same time. So, you did doubled your defence, but at a relatively ...
