This page includes information and links to documents that will help Commonwealth users of the VPN service delivered through MassIT (formerly ITD) transition to the new, more sophisticated VPN platform being phased in.
The new platform gives users much greater flexibility for using VPN while providing a higher level of security than ever before. It does this by making use of a Universal Identity Service (UIS). To connect to the new VPN platform, you will log in through a new UIS website using a (regular) password of your choice. Each time you log in, the UIS will auto-generate and send to you a one-time access code that will act as your “soft token.” You will enter that code to complete your login and access the VPN.
- To use the new platform, users will first have to create a “MassIT VPN UIS profile.” It’s a quick and easy process. We created instructions with screenshots for your convenience.
