    VPN is a network technology that is used to create secure network connection over a public network Corporations like government organizations , educational institutions use VPN technology so as to help remote users to securely communicate with a private network.A VPN can connect multiple sites over a large distance.

    Types of VPN:

    1- Secure VPN
    2- Trusted VPN
    3- Hybrid VPN

    Requirements of Secure VPN:

    1-Secure VPN requires encrypted and authenticated traffic.

    2-All parties in the VPN must agree to the security properties.

    3-No outsider (i.e. other than VPN) can affect the security properties of the VPN

    Requirements of Trusted VPN:

    1-Only trusted VPN provider can affect the creation/modification on a path in the VPN.

    2-Only trusted VPN provider can delete data, change data, inject data on a path in the VPN.

    3-We establish the routing and addressing before the VPN is created

    4-The address boundaries of the secure VPN within the trusted VPN must be extremely clear.

    Hybrid VPN requirements

    The secure VPN may be subset of trusted VPN in a hybrid VPN.

    NOTE: A requirement that is common to all the VPNs is that the VPN administrator must have the extent knowledge of the VPN.

    VPN Protocols :

    Below is the list of VPN protocols that make data transport secure over a public network infrastructure. Each protocol has a varied feature in respect of keeping data secure.

    1-IP security (IPSec):

    1-It is used for secure communications over the Internet. It is also used as a security layer for other

    2-IPSec traffic can use either transport mode or tunneling to encrypt data traffic in a VPN.

    2.1-Transport mode: this mode encrypts message within the payload (i.e. data packet)
    2.2-Tunneling mode: this mode encrypts the entire payload. 

    2 Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) and Transport Layer Security (TLS):

    1-These protocols uses cryptography for secure communications over the Internet.

    2-Handshake authentication method is used that is helpful in negotiating network parameters between the
    server and client machines.

    3-For initating a connection we require an authentication process and certificates.

    3-Point-To-Point Tunneling Protocol (PPTP):

    1-This protocol is used to connect a remote client to a private server over the Internet.

    2-It is a tunneling protocol (i.e. it encrypts the whole data packet while communication).

    3-It is most widely used VPN protocols. We can find it easily with the Windows Operating System.

    4-Layer 2 Tunneling Protocol (L2TP):

    1-This protocol is used for encrypting data communications traffic between two sites.

    2-L2TP is often used with IPSec to secure the transfer of L2TP payload.

    3-A VPN implementation that uses L2TP/IPSec needs certificates or shared key.
