VPN Tracker is built with the security of your network connections on your Mac in mind. We have integrated the latest security standards to make VPN Tracker secure and ready for the future – no matter what edition of VPN Tracker you're using.
Solid OS X foundation
Security is the top priority for VPN Tracker and it uses everything OS X has to offer in terms of security: Your passwords are stored securely in keychain, and VPN Tracker takes advantage of the latest innovations in OS X security – code signing, 64 bit, XPC services, and more – to safeguard your data.
VPN Tracker supports encryption up to AES-256 to satisfy even the most demanding requirements by military organizations, enterprises and government.

2-factor: Go beyond passwords
If you need more security than passwords can provide, VPN Tracker also offers support for two-factor authentication (2FA) based on X.509 certificates, smart cards, and PKI token. One-time passcode tokens, such as RSA SecurID, work great with VPN Tracker through Extended Authentication (XAUTH).

VPN Tracker's rekeying abilities enable it to reliably re-negotiate encryption keys. It automatically renews DHCP leases over VPN, to let your Mac stay connected as long as you want.
End your VPN connections right
