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. Verification via your phone

Do you need a new activation code for PointSharp?

If you previously have been using PointSharp and would need a new activation code, set up multi-factor authentication via Microsoft Authenticator, text message or phone call instead.

Guidelines for remote work

  • Just connect to the VPN when you need it. This ensures capacity and accessibility to KI resources.
  • Get in the habit of deconnecting the Cisco AnyConnect VPN when you take a break or meeting.
  • Remember your colleagues so that everyone who needs to has the opportunity to work remotely. Most resources can be accessed without a VPN connection.
