Date and time: 24 February 2022, 11:00-13:00 CET  Online Seminar


The purpose of eduVPN is to provide a more secure access to public and private networks for the international research and education community. The essential eduVPN user experience should be: “open your laptop and be securely online”. eduVPN service instances offered by NRENs or universities, research labs, etc. allow students, researchers and staff from participating institutions to obtain a VPN on their devices to known end-points to access private or public networks across the world.


The objective of this workshop is to raise awareness among decision makers about eduVPN, describe its value proposition and show eduVPN’s benefit for NRENs and their users. This training covers a technical presentation of eduVPN and hands-on exercises to deploy, configure and join eduVPN community.
