Rensselaer implementing increased security for off-campus access to RPI systems

Mon, 05/17/2021 - 12:12 -- donohm2

To increase secure access to RPI systems, including email, from off-campus, Rensselaer will be requiring Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) for VPN using Cisco AnyConnect Duo.  Note this install needs to be done when not connected to the RPI network – either via hard wire or wpa2.   Also if you have not changed your password since the notice that went out on 05/14/2021 you will need to change your password first.

Please reference the below links for installing Duo Mobile and VPN (if needed).
