Stanford University Libraries invites you to celebrate Lithuania’s independence on March 11 at Cubberley Auditorium.

The film director Marius Markevicius will be present to answer questions after the film.

The University's Information Security Office has announced that beginning on February 25th, use of the Stanford Virtual Private Network (VPN) will require two-step authentication. Stanford's VPN service is frequently used by hackers to gain unauthorized access to Stanford resources via compromised SUNet accounts. The addition of two-step authentication will prevent this abuse, just as it strongly protects access to our web-based services.

For more information and instructions on the changes to the VPN service, see ITS's Two-Step Authentication for VPN webpage. Once the additional security is in place, should you experience problems using VPN, please submit a HelpSU ticket.

An overview of Stanford's two-step authentication is available online.  Additionally, IT Services will provide in-person training on two-step authentication on Thursday Feb. 19th, from 10-11 in the SSRC room in Green Library.
