Local Area Network

Local Area Network or LAN typically refers to either physical or virtual networks in the same locality and typically behind a firewall or other network segmentation device. Historically the LAN might be considered a trusted network, but modern practice is to not trust any network and run protection on hosts and communications between hosts irrespective of the trust level. The LAN is more often than not formed by one or multiple Virtual LAN.
