VPN Token

Definition - What does VPN Token mean?

A VPN token is a type of security mechanism that is used to authenticate a user or device on a VPN infrastructure. A VPN token works similarly to a standard security token. It primarily provides an additional layer of authentication and security within a VPN.

Techopedia explains VPN Token

A VPN token is typically enabled by two-factor authentication, where the end user not only provides a password but also authenticates the device. This is done to ensure that the user connects with a VPN only through an authorized device. A VPN token can be hardware or software based, however, most VPNs use software tokens to authorize remotely connected users.
