VPN service

When working remotely, you can connect via our Virtual Private Network (VPN) to access KI’s private network and internal resources – such as, shared folders on a file server (public folders).

With the VPN service, your computer works just as it would as if you were on campus. This means that you are identified as a KI employee and have direct access to resources, such as electronic journals for instance, without an additional login.

Login to the VPN takes place via two steps:

  1. Username and password (your KI ID)
  2. A one-time code is generated in the PointSharp App. More information about how to download PointSharp can be found in the user manuals.

User manuals

In the manuals you will find information on how to get started with VPN, i.e. how to download the VPN client and the PointSharp App which is needed to generate the one-time code required for login.

Download the client and log in using these manuals:

Do you need a new activation code?

If you are already using the VPN, and have for instance received a new phone, contact, which will then send a new activation code to you.

Two factor authentication without a mobile phone

The login with the PointSharp App only works if you have a smartphone. If you have a mobile phone that can not download apps, you can purchase a device to generate the one-time codes. Fill in the order form and send it to

Order form - Device to generate one-time codes

This device is personal and you will need to pick it up personally and show your identification, as a security measure.

We will get back to you when the device is ready to be picked up at IT Support in the Administration Building, Nobels väg 5, Solna Campus or at the IT Support on Campus Flemingsberg.
