A Virtual Private Network (VPN) is a service that creates a secure, encrypted connection over a less secure network, such as the public internet. VPN uses tunneling protocols to encrypt data at the sending end and decrypt it at the receiving end. It provides users the experience of being on a private network, regardless of their location, thus ensuring secure and private transmission of data.
The essential components of a VPN include:
- VPN Server: This is the server through which your computer sends encrypted data. This server could be located anywhere globally, and it’s the server’s IP address that your activities will be linked to, not your own.
- VPN Client: This is the software on your device that allows you to connect to the VPN server.
- Tunneling Protocols: These are the methods by which your device connects to a VPN server. Some common protocols include OpenVPN, L2TP/IPSec, PPTP, and IKEv2.
- Encryption: VPNs use strong encryption protocols to ensure that the data transmitted through the VPN tunnel is unreadable to anyone who might intercept it.
