Virtual Private Networks (VPN's)

Virtual Private Networking is a solution by which two or more computers or networks can communicate securely over a public network. By creating a tunnel through the public network, a "virtual connection" is created.

VPN's may exist between an individual machine and a private network (client-to-server) or a remote LAN and a private network (server-to-server). Security features differ from product to product, but most security experts agree that VPN's include encryption, a tunneling protocol, strong authentication of remote users or hosts, and mechanisms for hiding or masking information about the private network topology from potential attackers on the public network.
