Recently, Passive Optical Networks (PONs) are widely deployed for providing high access bandwidth. Virtual Private Network (VPN) is gaining rapid attention to support efficient and secure communication over PON. Many approaches have been proposed to demonstrate secure VPN implementation over public infrastructures; however, the existing approaches cannot be efficiently applied to provide secure VPN over PON. Network coding is a promising technology which can assure secure data transmission. Therefore, in this paper, the authors will study how to use network coding for supporting secure VPN over PON.
