Introduction

An SSL VPN is a virtual private network which uses the Secure Layer Socket (SSL) or the Transport Layer Security (TLS) protocol in web browsers to create a secure, remote VPN connection between the endpoint device and the SSL/TSL server. Using end-to-end encryption (E2EE), an SSL VPN enables remote users, such as corporate employees, telecommuters, contractors, and so on, to access internal corporate resources and to have secure internet access from outside the corporate network.

This tutorial shows how to enable FortiGate users to remotely access your internal network and the internet using an SSL VPN connected by web mode from FortiToken Cloud.
