2018 in Review, The Short Version
We’re about five days out from the end of the year, and I’ve been somewhat quiet. Work’s been pretty busy this year, and I have let a lot of things slide that I really didn’t want to but time left me with no choice. 2019, though, I intend to do the things I didn’t get much of a chance to do over the past year, photography being the main thing. I’ve got a new camera all set, and I’ve got lots of ideas.
VPNs and a Review
Virtual Private Network (VPN) creates an encrypted tunnel between your computer and a remote computer. You may have connected to your workplace via a corporate VPN and it’s the same concept. Once connected, any network traffic generated by your device is sent over the encrypted tunnel to the remote machine, and then out to the world at large. Basically if someone were to try to sniff your traffic between your computer and the remote VPN server, all they would see is garbage.
