Introduction

VPN (Virtual Private Network) the name itself defines that it is a private network and thus all the information that you send and receive on a VPN is walled off from other computers and the internet.

VPN works on the tunneling protocol which is known as Encapsulation. In this process, data is sent privately over the internet, via a VPN. In this process, each packet of data is placed inside another data packet before it is sent over the internet.

The next layer of security added by the VPN is called Encryption. In this method, the data is encoded so that the packets can only be read by your VPN client and server, which are securely connected together.

VPN uses a number of security protocols to encrypt the data which is sent over the internet, such as IPSec and OpenVPN.

  1. Encrypting the encapsulated data packet with a secured key. This key is shared only between the VPN’s server and clients.
  1. Use a sub-protocol called Encapsulation Header which hides certain packet information, including the sender’s identity, during transmission of the data.

How strong does SaferVPN encode my connection

SaferVPN offers 256-bit encoding for your traffic from PC to the SaferVPN network. It offers you security regardless of the application you are using and keeps you safe from data sniffing link Deep Packet Inspection. The safety level of your connection is comparable with that of a secure web page, for example, Internet Banking pages etc. In fact, in case you visit a HTTPS address in the Internet your data is secured all the way from your PC to your banking account.

In order to add more security to your surfing, you can use Force HTTPs which is a function of SaferVPN. This helps you to access many websites automatically via https instead of HTTP. You can even use Chrome/Firefox add-on “HTTPS Everywhere”.

A computer will take more than 3.000.000.000.000.000.000.000.000.000.000.000.000.000.000.000.000.000.000 years to hack a 256 bit AES secured connection.
