extranetSimilar to a corporate Intranet, an Extranet is a local network accessible to specific outside users or businesses, but still inaccessible to the general public. Although a user may have access to an extranet, the extranet may only display information that he or she is privileged to see or only allow access to specific sections of the extranet.
