What does a VPN use to ensure that any transmissions that are intercepted will be indecipherable? Dominik February 22, 2020 Anonymity Tunneling protocols allowing for two-way data traffic encryption are the basis of any and every virtual private network. Countless doctorates have already been written on the subject of cryptography, not to mention the profession has its very own “Nobel” in the form of the Turing Award which has been going strong for over half a century now. Which is another way of saying you really shouldn’t worry about an AES-256 key getting cracked. Because if that happens anytime soon, we’ll probably have quantum-computing terrorists targeting our Bitcoin wallets to worry about before we’re forced to submit to our new overlords. Yet we’re still unironically encouraging you to remain passionately and vocally worried about the prospect of VPN integrity moving forward. Everyone knows that IT concerns bordering on paranoia are the only way the cybersecurity industry can stay on top of the ever-rising mountains of issues that keep popping up from every direction. To be honest, that’s not that surprising given how the society has nowadays strayed so far away from God that it’s connecting everything from trash cans to mothers-in-law to the Internet.
