Aug. 31, 2015, 10:56 a.m.

VPN stands for Virtual Private Network; simply a group of computers (or discrete networks) networked together through over a public network—namely, the internet. VPN is used as a method for securing and encrypting communications.


iWASEL VPN creates an encrypted tunnel through which all of your online data passes back and forth which guarantees that all of the data you're sending and receiving is secured from hackers and data sniffers.


VPN Protocols:


iWASEL VPN uses 2 reliable VPN protocols:


OpenVPN: OpenVPN is an advanced open source VPN solution backed by the company 'OpenVPN technologies'. It uses the mature SSL/TLS encryption protocols. OpenVPN is very stable, reliable, fast and secure and it is the best choice for desktops. OpenVPN is supported by Windows, Linux, Mac OS X and Android operating systems.


L2TP; Layer 2 Tunneling Protocol (L2TP): L2TP is an advanced protocol and the recommended replacement for PPTP where secure data encryption is required. L2TP is often used in tandem with IPSec (which acts as a security layer) to secure the transfer of L2TP data packets over the Internet. Unlike PPTP, a VPN implementation using L2TP/IPSec requires a shared key or the use of certificates. L2TP uses the highest encryption and data integrity checking L2TP is supported by Windows, iOS, Mac OS X, Android and Linux operating systems and it is the best choice for mobile devices and tablets.
