Termination of Password-Based Authentication for the IKEv2 VPN Service

Dear all,

Kyoto University VPN (IKEv2) will no longer be able to connect by password authentication in late August 2022. Therefore, for those who are using the VPN (IKEv2) to access campus services from off-campus, please add client authentication settings to each terminal before the end of the service. Client certificates required for client authentication must be issued and configured for each individual terminal.

Therefore, please note that this service is not available for shared terminals where a user is shared.

*Please delete the VPN (IKEv2) setting with the password authentication after the password authentication service is terminated.
