A"Virtual Private Network" (VPN) is a secured connection between two private networks via a public network (e.g. the Internet). This means that an existing Internet connection is required in order to connect to the university network via VPN in a second step. To secure the data, the traffic is sent encrypted over the public network.

VPN I like because ...
... so that I can also use my private notebook.
"I simply sit down with my private notebook in one of the study rooms, connect with VPN and have the same access as I do from a university PC".
... I can use the IT services of the University of Graz from home and on the road.
"I don't even have to go to the university to research books, for example, but do it comfortably from home. VPN started and off I go, just as if I were sitting at a university PC."
... I'm safer abroad.
"When I am in hotels or airports, it already makes me feel better when I start VPN before I access my university data. It's just safer."
