VPN: Virtual Private Network

A virtual private network, or VPN, allows a user to create an encrypted connection between a workstation and a VPN server, to ensure that all the traffic between these two points is encrypted and secure.

The university uses a VPN server to give users the ability to access university resources from off-campus locations.

To use the VPN, a user must have a valid UMassD Logon.
