What is a Virtual Private Network?

Printer-friendly versionPDF version

A Virtual Private Network (VPN) is essentially a secure communications "tunnel" that connects a remote computer to a corporate (or in HSU's case University) network. HSU's VPN uses a combination of authentication (confirming that you are who you say you are) and encryption to ensure only authorized users can read data transmitted through that tunnel.
