Networks[1]

A virtual private network (VPN) extends a private network across a public network, and enables users to send and receive data across shared or public networks as if their computing devices were directly connected to the private network. Applications running across the VPN may therefore benefit from the functionality, security, and management of the private network.[2]

Required technologies[edit]

  • A LAN that is connected to the internet.
  • One computer outside of the LAN that is also connected to the internet.
  • VPN client and server running on the lone machine and the original LAN
  • Internet connection


Standards[edit]

These standards are used from the IB Computer Science Subject Guide[3]

  • Identify the technologies required to provide a VPN.
  • Evaluate the use of a VPN.
