An Extranet is a website that is present on the Internet but is only available to authorized individuals. It is typically protected by a mechanism that requires a visitor to provide an authorized login id and corresponding password. The Extranet mechanisms may also require that a visitor logging in do so using an encrypted connection.

The users of an Extranet are typically employees, customers, or suppliers with a relationship to the organization operating the Extranet.
