Up One Level



An Extranet is a private network which uses the Internet protocols and extends beyond an organisation's premises, typically to allow access by clients, suppliers, or selected third parties.

Extranets require strong security if they are to prevent unauthorised access. This can range from a relatively simple User ID and password to the use of Digital Certificates, User IDs and passwords, with, naturally, end to end encryption of data.
