VPN Gateway is an Internet-based service that securely and reliably connects enterprise data centers, office networks, and Internet terminals to virtual private clouds (VPCs) of Alibaba Cloud through encrypted channels.


VPN Gateway supports both IPsec-VPN connections and SSL-VPN connections.
  • IPsec-VPN

    IPsec-VPN connects networks based on routes. It facilitates the configuration and maintenance of VPN policies, and provides flexible traffic routing methods.

    You can use the IPsec-VPN feature to establish a secure connection between a data center and a virtual private cloud (VPC) or between two VPCs. IPsec-VPN supports the IKEv1 and IKEv2 protocols. All gateway devices that support the two protocols can connect to VPN gateways on Alibaba Cloud.

    You can use IPsec-VPN in different scenarios. For more information, see IPsec-VPN overview.


    You can use the SSL-VPN feature to connect a client to applications or services that are deployed in a VPC. After you deploy applications or services in a VPC, you need only to import the required certificate to a client and initiate a connection to the VPC.

    You can use SSL-VPN in different scenarios. For more information, see SSL-VPN overview.
