The purpose of this policy is to provide guidelines for remote access Virtual Private Network (VPN) connections to the Murray State University network. Any questions or comments about this policy should be directed to Information Systems.
This policy applies to students, faculty, staff, or individuals external to MSU that utilize the Murray State University VPN.
Approved Murray State University employees and authorized third parties (customers, vendors, etc.) may use Murray State University's VPN, which is a "user managed" service. This means that the user is responsible for selecting an Internet Service Provider (ISP), coordinating installation, installing any required software, and paying associated fees.
Users must also abide by the following general guidelines, as well as the VPN Standards.
Anyone found to have violated this policy may be subject to disciplinary action, up to and including suspension of access to technology resources or termination of employment. Students may be referred to Student Affairs for discipline. A violation of this policy by a temporary worker, contractor or vendor may result in action up to and including termination of their contract or assignment with Murray State University.
