Overview (What is it?)

VPN allows approved professional faculty and staff members remote access to university resources, and are subject the following terms and conditions:

TERMS OF USE FOR VPN ACCESS

1. Authorization to use the campus VPN system will be granted by the Assistant Director of Information Technologies or his designee.  An appeal of disapproval may be made to the Office of Information Technology (OIT) whose decision shall be final.

2. Authorized users that are system administrators of university servers are permitted to use the campus VPN system on their personally owned computers.  These users are responsible for the installation, configuration and use of the Cisco VPN client on their personally owned computers.  OIT will provide these authorized users with the media to install the Cisco VPN client along with appropriate instructions for the installation, configuration and use of the software.

3. All other authorized users will only be permitted to use the campus VPN system on university owned computers.   OIT staff will install the Cisco VPN client on the university owned workstation(s) assigned to each authorized user.  OIT staff will also provide appropriate instruction in the use of the campus VPN system to each authorized user.

4. Authorized users are required to ensure that the university licensed Symantec anti-virus software is properly installed and kept up-to-date on any university owned computer(s) being used to access the APSU network through VPN.   OIT staff will setup and configure the Symantec client on the university computers to access virus definition files from the Internet rather than the university network. Authorized users that are allowed to install the Cisco VPN client on their personally owned computers are required to have a current and up-to-date version of a commercial ant-virus software application on any computers being used to access the APSU network through VPN.  Authorized users will be held responsible for any damage that occurs to resources on the APSU network if attacks occur from the computer they are using to access the APSU network with VPN.

5. Authorized users are required to keep the VPN group username and password secure as well as their individual university usernames and passwords.  Authorized users are not permitted to allow unauthorized users access to the university owned workstation at any time. Authorized users are not permitted to allow unauthorized users access to personal computers at any time while the computer is accessing the APSU network through VPN.

6. Authorized users are responsible for securing their workstations and all university resources while using VPN to access the APSU network.
