      Remote Authentication Dial In User Service (RADIUS)

      http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/RADIUS

      Authentication, Authorization, and Accounting

      Radius is just a reasonably secure way to authenticate remote users. It was originally developed for dial-in users, but is commonly used for VPN and even Wireless LAN authentication.

      Radius is not a VPN, as it has nothing to do with transport. It is commonly used by VPN servers for authentication.

      From a network perspective, a RADIUS server would typically sit inside the network on the same segment where it was needed…e.g. for the VPN server or for the Wireless LAN users.
