MIT has partnered with AT&T to build a neutral-host Distributed Antenna System (DAS) on the MIT campus. The DAS is a network of antenna nodes connected to a common radio frequency source via a transport medium that provides improved cellular coverage and capacity within a building.
The DAS is open to all wireless carriers. IS&T is continuously working with wireless carriers to make coverage and capacity improvements on campus.
IS&T provides access to Duo, a two-factor authentication application that leverages landlines and smartphones as an "Approve" or "Deny" system to identify users. Duo is a self-service web application for Touchstone-enabled web applications at MIT.
OpenID Connect (OIDC) is a RESTful authorization service that allows members of the MIT community to set authorization requirements for applications to access their RESTful Web APIs and Services at MIT. These requirements are based on OAuth2.0.
MITnet is the short name for MIT's campus-wide computer network.
The remote access Virtual Private Network (VPN) service provides added privacy and security for your computing activities as well as the ability to access protected MIT resources that require a MITnet IP address.
The Prisma Access VPN service, a cloud-based VPN offering, provides a secure connection between your computing device and the cloud VPN gateway using the GlobalProtect VPN client.
