I connected to my home-made VPN, which uses OpenVPN and 2048bits encryption keys, from my work.
What are the security risks of doing so, given the fact that the servers are in the same network my work's PC is, and how can I minimize them if any?
What I mean, is that the IT Manager seems to be pissed off by the fact that I connected a to my home via VPN to take some configs of my personal home server to apply to a server I manage in my work. I am sure he will say that "There are security risks" by connecting to my home. I sincerely don't see many risks, apart from having a super hacker in my home network which would be stupid because who would be interested in it? So, suppose this super hacker can connect to my Work PC from my home network while I am connected to my VPN. This is very difficult because I don't use the same password in my home and in my work, so he would not be able to SSH to my work pc, etc.
This is the only security risk I can think of... so I would like to hear from you if there are some others.
