Going online on Internet hotspots is not very safe and secure for users in many places. This obvious observation led to two distinct initiatives presented in the last two years at TNC: eduVPN (SURFnet) and eduSAFE (GÃ‰ANT). The eduSAFE team and the eduVPN team decided to join forces in order to take a next step that will make our VPN solution as the VPN standard for the educational community. This next step is the development of a federated VPN usage model. This will allow VPN users to choose between eduVPN endpoints that other NRENs have deployed. The lightning talk is about how the federated eduVPN model works.
