PTA to Block All Unregistered Virtual Private Networks (VPNs)

Pakistan Telecommunication Authority has started the registration of all authorized Virtual Private Networks (VPNs) Tunnels in order to curb grey trafficking in the country. All users can apply to PTA for registration for their VPN connection through their respective provider. Last date for registration is 25th May, 2014 after which all unregistered VPN connections would be blocked.

A virtual private network (VPN) is a network that uses a public telecommunication infrastructure, such as the Internet, to provide remote offices or individual users with secure access to their organization’s network.
