Secure Remote Access (SRA) is used to access Princeton-specific resources from off-campus. It creates an encrypted connection between your computer and the University servers.
After authenticating, your remote computer functions as if it were on campus and is even given a Princeton IP address. SRA requires Duo Two-Factor authentication
When do you need to use SRA? For remote access to the university financial and reporting systems, University Library, Princeton Web Mail, Hotel wireless, and especially anywhere there is public internet access like airports or at an internet café like Starbucks.
