Web-based VPN

Additional to to the VPN Service the ZIH provides protected access to the TUD network via a web-based VPN (WebVPN). Numerous web-based features within the TUD intranet and the SLUB (e.g. electronic magazines) are only released for PCs within the TUD IP-address area. Services can now be easily and securly be accessed from outside the TUD with the help of WebVPN. Therefor WebVPN provides an encrypted and authenticated communication via SSL/TLS.

In contrast to the VPN service, WebVPN is a purely browser-based solution, which means the communication is just protected in the browser. WebVPN is also interesting for mobile devices, because tey don't support normal VPN clients.
