First of all, a virtual private network can be thought of as a private tunnel, tunneling occurs when a message is encapsulated within another message at the same layer of the TCP/IP protocol stack, and may be classified by:

1. The protocols used in the private tunnel

  • GRE (Generic Routing Encapsulation)
  • PPTP (point-to-point tunneling protocol)
  • L2F (layer two forwarding)
  • L2TP (layer two tunneling protocol)
  • IPSEC (Internet protocol security architecture)

By the way, L2 above stands for Layer two as in the Data Link Layer of the OSI(open systems interconnection) reference model and the Network Access Layer of TCP/IP; therefore, this means that VPNs “secure-at-the-core”.

2. The private tunnel’s end point

3. The site-to-site or remote access connectivity

4. The security levels provided

5. The OSI (Open Systems Interconnection) reference model

ViperVPN’s application of these characteristics are simple, easy-to-use, and powerful for both the casual “television consumer” as well as for geeks seeking to empower secure business communication around the world for their C level executives. Golden Frog provides two basic product:


A private tunnel using tunneling technology as very briefly describe above in order promote prosperous, free, and open expression of our humanity.

If you are one of those folks who is paranoid about the NSA snooping into your business, you may be at ease to know that Dump Truck an online storage solution protected under the umbrella of  tunneling protocol technologies.

Now, I will say, anything that we share on the Internet, despite the use of tunneling protocols, is fundamentally not secure for the simply fact that the Internet is the make up of a countless number of networks that was discovered and built by the human mind; therefore, what the human mind can create it can break into as well. For example: the national security agency.

Despite the fundamental flaws of Internet security, I love how VyperVPN provides me a way to access virtually any data anywhere in the world and from anywhere in the world, with a network connection of course.

I am a technology enthusiast that currently resides in the suburbs of Tokyo, Japan as an independent language consultant with my wife of twelve years and who has traveled the world over with the U.S Navy while earning my Bachelor’s of Science in Computer Information Systems degree and absolutely adore all things tech and believe more folks should understand the devices in which consume so much of their hard earned cash; furthermore, it just tickles me to death when I have taught someone some useful new process or solution that improved the quality of their life. I watch Eli the computer guy most days, sometimes live, being inspired every day.
