Universitas Brawijaya also provides VPN service. VPN (Virtual Private Network) is a service that make it possible for the user to safely and privately access webs through server and hide your online activities. VPN services provided by UB are PPTP and L2TP. PPTP and L2TP services are available for Windows and Android operating systems, while only L2TP is available for Mac and iOS. To ensure better security, we advise users to use L2TP because it uses key. To connect to UB VPN services, users have to insert their UB account username and password.
PPTP (Point-To-Point Tunneling Protocol) is a protocol that has been used for a while, which initially designed by Microsoft. The pros of PPTP: works on older computers, integrated in the Windows OS and easy to prepare. The cons of PPTP: not very secure.
L2TP/IPsec (Layer 2 Tunneling Protocol) is a combination of PPTP and L2F Cisco protocol. The protocol uses key to create secure connection in every end of your data tunnel. Addition of IPsec also increase the security of this method.
