The idea of VDE is very effective but straightforward simple and can be applied in very many configuration to provide several services. It is a sort of Swiss knife of emulated networks. It can be used as a general Virtual Private network as well as a support technology for mobility, a tool for network testing, a general reconfigurable overlay network, a layer for implementing privacy preserving technologies and many others. A prototype VDE has been implemented and released as Free Software under the GPL licence.
