Virtual Private Network (VPN) Service provides a method of securing connections to HKUST Network from off-campus using the public Internet.
- Through the VPN connection, your data sent across the public Internet to HKUST Network is encrypted.
- When you are using a VPN connection, you will be assigned a HKUST IP address. This allows you to access protected resources on HKUST Network that are retricted from off-campus access.
- Use the VPN client software to secure wireless connections to HKUST Network when using pubic Wi-Fi networks.
