Recently, the China Academy of Art has successfully deployed WoSign OV ZhenSSL certificate in its campus VPN system, which secures the data transmission of VPN and makes it possible for all staff to use campus network resources in a convenient and safe way even outside the campus.
The service of remote access to the school library resources is no longer new. It is rather common in colleges and universities in developed countries. Most of the foreign colleges and universities have already applied full-site HTTPS, using SSL certificates to protect the security of information links, while domestic colleges and universities have implemented the campus VPN service. Virtual Private Network (VPN) is a way for remote users to gain access to internal network safely through building a private network over a public one and encrypting the communication. VPN is widely applied in networks of universities and enterprises.
The deployment of SSL certificate of China Academy of Art is aimed to make it more convenient for all staff to use resources from internal network. On the other hand, it prevents the data of students stored in campus network from being stolen. The head of information center said that as an influential university organization, it is important to ponder on the problem of internet technique from the angle of not only convenience but also security. A humble VPN interface can lead to full disclosure of information of thousands of students and staff if it is not controlled well, doing severe damage to school’s information security and its image.
The important factors when deploy SSL are its full support to browsers and the authoritativeness of the CA. After several times’ testing, China Academy of Art finally chose to deploy WoSign OV ZhenSSL certificate in the VPN interface. The responsible officer said that as rare authoritative third-party CA in our country, WoSign OV ZhenSSL certificate presents higher cost performance and can support different browsers better. It is more secured than foreign certificates and has better features than other domestic certificates. It is the best choice for campus VPN system to deploy SSL certificate.
