The QuipaLoop can operate across one or many physical networks and is easily deployed on mobile devices as well as traditional laptop or desktop computers. QuipaLoop eliminates the security weaknesses that result from spoof-able certificate authorities common to SSL VPN, and it avoids reliance on third parties for trust assurance.
