Virtual Private Network (VPN)

VPN (Virtual Private Network) is a software service that provides password-protected access to KFUPM's network and Internet services when you are connecting from off-campus. It is as secure as when you are connected directly to the KFUPM network on campus. VPN is required to access some secure KFUPM services when using a computer outside KFUPM.


WebVPN provides remote web-based access to KFUPM web resources such as E-Business, BI, portal and filer. Importantly, WebVPN does not require the installation of any client software.
