Operating on the principle of not-for-profit, VNIX is considered as one of the key infrastructures of Vietnam's Internet network, making an important contribution to ensuring Internet safety in Vietnam, connecting Internet service providers, and promoting the development of Vietnam's Internet. Currently, VNIX is also a digital infrastructure connecting digital platforms, and a solution to promote national digital transformation, which was defined in Decision 749/QD-TTg dated June 3, 2020 by The Prime Minister approving the "National Digital Transformation Program to 2025, with orientation to 2030".
VNIX was established with the initial goal of being a management and regulatory tool of the government, creating a neutral environment to support Internet businesses to connect with each other and develop the Internet in Vietnam.

To accomplish this, VNIX focuses on the following objectives:
- Ensuring Internet safety in Vietnam.
- Promote domestic content development.
- Promoting the transformation of Vietnam's Internet to the new generation IPv6.
- Connecting to the network of government agencies, the e-Government network system brings the best service to the people.
- Turning Vietnam gradually into a regional connectivity hub.
