VPN groups with enterprise needs are termed “Common Good VPN Groups.” Currently the groups that meet this criterion are “UofMvpn,” “‘UofMVPNNoLibraries,” “UofMSplit,” and “Xvpn.” Access to these groups requires University of Minnesota Internet ID authentication and authorization.
The group “UofMvpn” services general virtual connectivity. The traffic is fully tunneled, fully encrypted, and offers a U of M public IP address. It is designed primarily to provide service for after-hours access or telecommuters.
The group “UofMVPNNoLibraries” has a similar service profile to UofMvpn, but the user’s Internet ID does not have attributes that indicate U of M libraries access.
The group “UofMSplit” services general virtual connectivity only to U of M destinations. The traffic profile offers RFC1918 private addressing, and only the traffic to U of M destinations is sent via the encrypted tunnel.
