USC Virtual Private Network (VPN) is a secure method of accessing USC computing resources. Data transmission is encrypted in transit between your computer and resources on USC network to prevent others from viewing or intercepting information. The VPN also provides the user with a virtual USC IP address that allows access to USC resources that restrict access.

Some USC online services require USC Secure Wireless or a wired network connection. USC VPN can provide remote access to those services while off-campus
