Virtual Private Networks (ITSAP.80.101)

Virtual Private Networks (ITSAP.80.101) A virtual private network (VPN) is a secure connection between two points, such as your laptop and your organization’s network. A VPN acts as a tunnel that you can use to send and receive secure data on an existing physical network. For example, a telework employee can use a VPN to send data that is encrypted until it reaches its destination (e.g. work server, teleworker). In this document, we introduce some of the risks and considerations your organization should understand before using VPN services. 2019-12-10 Communications Security Establishment Canada open-ouvert@tbs-sct.gc.ca Information and CommunicationsScience and TechnologyCyber DefenceRemote AccessNetwork SecurityRisk Management HTML ENHTML https://cyber.gc.ca/en/guidance/virtual-private-networks-itsap80101 HTML FRHTML https://cyber.gc.ca/fr/orientation/les-reseaux-prives-virtuels-itsap80101 PDF ENPDF https://cyber.gc.ca/sites/default/files/publications/ITSAP.80.101-en.pdf PDF FRPDF https://cyber.gc.ca/sites/default/files/publications/ITSAP.80.101-fr.pdf
