Authentication overview

All resources in the Workarea Hosting Platform are isolated from the outside world, accessible only by connecting to a bastian instance using a VPN client or SSH.

As a user, the first step to connecting and authenticating to an Environment is to use your Weblinc credentials to setup and configure your VPN client or SSH public key.
