  Virtual private network - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
VPN is a cost effective and secure way for different corporations to provide user access to the corporate network and for remote networks to communicate with each other across the Internet.
Secure VPN are more cost-effective than dedicated private lines; usually VPN involves two parts: the protected or "inside" network, which provides physical and administrative security to protect the transmission; and a less trustworthy, "outside" network or segment (usually through the Internet).
From the user's perspective, this means that while the VPN client is active, all access outside their employer's secure network must pass through the same firewall as would be the case while physically connected to the office ethernet.

 Riverstone Networks - MPLS VPNs - Layer 2 or Layer 3?
In a Layer 2 MPLS VPN, the PE router is not a peer to the CE router and does not maintain separate routing tables.
VPN traffic is carried over an IP/MPLS network, without upgrading to expensive and specialized core routers at the edge.
In the end, as MPLS VPNs are deployed, it is likely that carriers will choose Layer 2 and Layer 3 VPNs for many of the same reasons they decided to deploy Layer 2 or Layer 3 networks.

The VPN Model of this document appears to be an instance of the framework described in [4].
VPNs with Different Routes to the Same System Although a site may be in multiple VPNs, it is not necessarily the case that the route to a given system at that site should be the same in all the VPNs.
A "transit VPN" is one which contains a router that receives routes from a "third party" (i.e., from a router which is not in the VPN, but is not a PE router), and that redistributes those routes to a PE router.

 Using VPNs
VPNs are based on a concept called tunneling, a method of encapsulating data into encrypted packets that can travel over IP networks securely and be delivered to a specific address.
The VPN was created prior to the availability of cable or DSL Internet access as a means to establish an on-demand private network between a network server and a dial-in remote user.
The costs associated with implementing a VPN must be justified against the current operational expenses incurred with the support of remote offices and users.

 IP VPNs: What’s Killing the Killer App?
Once the CPE for a VPN is in place, providing encryption from the moment the data leaves the building, managing that equipment requires only a small portion of one network administrator's time.
Even in intra-company VPNs today, a call from a European office to the U.S. might mean several network provider handoffs, first from a local to a regional carrier, then to a long-haul carrier and back to a local provider on the other end.
With many buzzwords like "VPN," "convergence" and "next-generation," we can easily fall into the trap of talking about technology for technology's sake and forget that all the carriers and their customers really want are solutions to business problems.

 VPNs unlock access mysteries
For business users, however, the versatility of VPNs and their ability to handle diverse types of traffic promises the technology will provide an economical method of moving data from place to place in ways that would have been prohibitively expensive over leased lines.
However, for up-and-coming VPN providers, "the sweet spot is outsourcing and delivering value-added services to the customer," says Nick Magliato, vice president and general manager of the network solution group at Digex, a Beltsville, Md.
This dramatically segmented market means that VPN providers must understand their customers-and their own businesses-if they hope to make a go of it.

 VPNs proving vital to corporate nets
VPN products are now fairly stable and can communicate relatively well with one another using the defined standard, but their evolution toward interoperability and manageability is far from complete.
For example, you could set up a CheckPoint VPN for remote access and site-to-site connections to branch offices and a Cisco PIX VPN for a partner extranet, and you could control all of the devices and clients involved from one location.
VPNs are quickly becoming a standard component in the IT infrastructure.

 IEC: Virtual Private Networks (VPNs)
While VPNs offer direct cost savings over other communications methods (such as leased lines and long-distance calls), they can also offer other advantages, including indirect cost savings as a result of reduced training requirements and equipment, increased flexibility, and scalability.
In a VPN, not only can T1 or T3 lines be used between the main office and the ISP, but many other media can be used to connect smaller offices and mobile workers to the ISP and, therefore, to the VPN without installing any added equipment at headquarters.
Outsourcing the VPN to a service provider can also reduce your internal technical-support requirements, because the service providers take over many of the support tasks for the network.

I don't doubt that a badly configured VPN is insecure and that statistics can claim how many are probably insecure, but I do think that the focus is incorrectly directed at the VPN technology and not at the users/admins/consultants/whoever.
The term SSL VPN was adopted in the late 1990s by vendors who needed to distinguish secure access by the authenticating and encrypting protocol they used.
SSL VPNs are simpler to deploy, and demonstrably less expensive to implement and operate.
