With the help of the Internet today we can communicate with anyone from anyplace to access all types of data with a high level of QoS. This mobility is available for legitimate users, as well as for illegitimate ones, for this reason we need extra data security. A solution for QoS and data confidentiality is Virtual Private Network (VPN); ways, in which we can reduce operational costs, grow productivity, simplify network topology and extend the area of connectivity. Video data packets must arrive with a constant and low delay at the same rate in order to have e real time transmission. This paper presents an analysis of different protocols used and the way that video data packets are encapsulated and encrypted for a high level of QoS in a VPN connection.
