Virtual Private Network (VPN)
SF State provides a secure VPN for faculty and staff to access protected on-campus resources.
SF State’s VPN has two purposes: It enables campus users to send and receive data across a public network as if their device is directly connected to the campus network, and adds two factor authentication for high security services. VPN is needed:
- When accessing a service restricted to use on campus networks or subnets. Examples: Departmental shares/servers, OnBase, Appworx, Windows/Office authentication, and Active Directory access
- When accessing services that store Level 1 data (two factor authentication required). Example: Departmental secure shares
- When administering servers/applications. Examples: SSH, Oracle, and server maintenance
