[F25/VPN] How to autoconnect to a VPN securely

Please read before closing this as duplicate. I am aware that similar questions exist already, but they don't solve my problem and/or are outdated.

Software: Fedora 25 Gnome Workstation x64; openVPN

Question: I want my System to automatically connect to a VPN (openVPN) without ANY data bypassing the VPN. In the gnome-network GUI there is no option to autoconnect to a VPN, also I am not sure if I have to use additional counter-measures against DNS-leaks and similar known problems.

What I did was: 1. Open Gnome network settings 2. Import my ovpn file 3. Enable the VPN
