                                                       VPN (Virtual Private Network)


VPN implements tunneling technology to provide a secure connection between computers over the Internet by routing data traffic to secure VPN servers.

The goal is to provide a virtual, private and secure tunnel (by encrypting exchanged data) between computers without need for expensive technologies like LAN (Local Area Network), and indeed it is considered a virtual LAN without complexities and expenses of a real local area network.
