VPN (Virtual Private Network) is a technology that links a computer to a remote network over an encrypted link. It allows users to access on-campus services from off-campus that are normally unavailable from off-campus. It can also be employed when using an untrusted network (such as a wireless network) to ensure that no one can eavesdrop on your network traffic.
