June 15, 2007, Newsletter Issue #69: Wireless Security: VPN

Tip of the Week

VPN stands for virtual private network, and is another wireless security measure used. VPN's encrypt information as it is sent via the wireless network. VPN software must be installed on individual computers, and in order to connect to the network, a username and password is required. When used properly, VPN's drastically increase wireless security and is a great security tool if you are connecting to a wireless home network from a public hot spot.
