    Most that I have read on B2B architectures for extranets covered security,
    if they covered security at all, did so in such a minimalist way as to be
    of no real consequence. Functionality is the main concern of most the
    wiriteups I've seen, or manuals on such. Perhaps the best forums for what
    you appear to be seeking are right here at your e-mailing fingertips just
    awaiting clarification of the information you seek. I think that was the
    context of Paul's reply.

    B2B/extranet/VPN solutions, all over blown and over used terms and
    technologies that far too often really do not mitigate any og the risks
    they are implimented for.
