VPN Access is a client-based web application that allows users on the Internet and on campus to gain access to Emory’s protected network cores. It does this by creating a virtual private network (VPN).
The VPN is run by the user who logs onto a website and launches an application. That application then creates a secure virtual tunnel between the user's computer and the area of the core that the user is accessing.
Remote Access: Allows users to access Emory's protected network cores from any point where there is viable Internet service
Core Protection: Authenticates user's access eligibility before allowing access to the core via Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP)
Granular Access Control: Allows for controls to limit user's access to specific areas of the core based on user's rights
