Virtual Private Network at Sacramento State has two main uses - authentication and data encryption*. It allows secure full network access through both campus wireless and open connections. Additionally, it provides a mechanism for remote users to access campus resources that are normally restricted from off campus access. It does so by first requiring the user to logon and authenticate as a member of the University community, it then flags the user's network traffic so that campus resources think the traffic originated at Sac State.
*Note: For those using VPN off campus, VPN does not encrypt data that is destined for non-Sac State addresses.
Cisco VPN is coming to end of life. As of August 15, 2010, you will no longer connect to campus services using Cisco VPN. Alternatives are available for connecting to most campus services. You can learn more here or call the IRT Service Desk at 8-7337.
