VIRTUAL PRIVATE NETWORK (VPN) CONNECTION

A Virtual Private Network (VPN) is a secure method of remotely accessing USC computer resources. The VPN encrypts all traffic to and from a computer in order to prevent others from viewing the information. VPN also provides the user with a virtual USC IP address that allows access to restricted USC resources.

Downloading the Cisco AnyConnect VPN Application To begin using a VPN connection with the USC network, you will need to download the Cisco AnyConnect Secure Mobility Client. Complete the following steps to download the AnyConnect application.

1. Open an Internet browser and navigate to http://mydornsife.usc.edu. The USCnet Login screen displays.

2. Enter your USC ID in the USC NetID: field. Your USC ID is the part of your USC e-mail address that appears before the @ symbol. For example, if your USC e-mail address were jdoe@usc.edu, your USC ID would be jdoe.
