As the name suggests, UH VPN Devices represent devices that people own. This could be a mobile phone, laptop, tablet and so on. Devices authenticate directly onto UH VPN servers and a VPN connection is then established between a device (UH VPN client application) and a server (UH VPN Server software).

Devices are managed through the website and are contained within people to facilitate easy association between people and their hardware.

Devices are immutable objects (cannot be modified once instantiated). This improves security by ensuring that there is a one-to-one mapping between UH VPN devices and physical devices a person owns. The OTP field on the person’s device page indicates whether the OTP code has been redeemed by a client application.
