Your Chromebook has built-in support for these VPNs:

Trust.Zone VPN supports L2TP and OpenVPN technology. So, you are able to install Trust.Zone VPN settings on your Chromebook.

Set up a TrustZone VPN on Chromebook

  - Click the status area, where your account picture appears.
  - Click Settings .
  - In the "Internet connection" section, click Add connection.
  - Click OpenVPN / L2TP.

  In the box that appears, fill in the information below. If you're using your Chromebook with an organization, you might need to get this information from your administrator.

Server hostname: The name of the server you need to connect with to access your VPN. This can either be the IP address or the full server hostname (see image2)

Service name:
This can be anything you want to name this connection. For example: "TrustZone VPN."

Provider type: If you use a passphrase or key besides your personal password to connect to your VPN, select L2TP/IPsec + Pre-shared key. If you use certificates that your administrator gives you, select L2TP/IPsec + User certificate.

Pre-shared key: This key isn't your personal password, but a passphrase or key used to connect to the VPN.

Server CA certificate: Select your installed server VPN certificate from the list.

User certificate: Select your installed user VPN certificate from the list. If you don't have any certificates installed, you'll see an error message. To install a certificate, see the instructions below.

Username: Your VPN credentials.

Password: Your VPN credentials.

OTP: If you have an OTP card or VPN token that generates one-time passwords, generate a password and enter it here.

Group name: The name of the VPN setup, if applicable.

See the image of corresponding fields (Chroombook fields <-> Trust.Zone fields). Click on the image to enlarge.

You might need certificates (server certificate and user certificate) to connect to a VPN during the installation. You'll need:

  A server certificate that's for everyone at your organization
  A user certificate that is specific to you

Install your server certificate 

Download your server certificate authority. Take it under 'CA certificate files' (see image2) on Trust.Zone setup page.
  Open a new tab in Chrome.
  In the address bar, enter
  Click the Authorities tab.
  Press the Import button and choose the X.509 certificate authority file, which is usually a file with a .pem, .der, .crt, or .p7b extension.
  In the box that appears, fill out the information on how this certificate authority should be trusted. None of these trust settings need to be enabled, so we recommend that you leave these unchecked.
  The certificate will open and install itself on your Chromebook.

Install your user certificate 

Download your user certificate. Take it under 'Client certificate files' (see image 2) on Trust.Zone setup page.
  Open a new tab in Chrome.
  In the address bar, enter
  Click the Your Certificates tab.
  If you have a .pfx or .p12 file to import, click the Import and Bind to Device button.
  In the box that opens, select the certificate file and click Open.
  When prompted, enter the password for your certificate. If you don't know the password, contact your network administrator.
  The certificate will open and install itself on your Chrome device.
