For remote access to internal services hosted at the Institute for Advanced Study (IAS), we utilize the OpenVPN software. This software allows authenticated users to create an encrypted tunnel or Virtual Private Network (VPN) between their remote device and our campus. This has a dual purpose of protecting your traffic from malicious networks and gaining you secure access to campus resources. This access includes services like home directories, the Princeton University Library Gateway (PULIBGW) and more. This VPN is replacing our legacy Pulse Secure VPN, which will eventually be decomissioned.
