Below is a list of tools that can be useful to work remotely.

Access to internal services

Sharing documents

  • SURFdrive can be used to share your documents between your devices (laptop, desktop, phone), but also with others. See SURFdrive

Audio / Video conferencing tools

Service status

  • Known problems and downtimes for the ICT services are announced via an external status page: https://nikhef.status.io/. It is possible to subscribe for email notifications. Tip: when possible, register a non-Nikhef email address so that you can receive notifications if for some reason mail or network services don't function properly.

SECURITY WARNING: PHISHING

It is expected that hackers will try to exploit the current situation where many people will work remotely. Hackers will probably launch more phishing attacks.

  • It is not needed to register your account to work remotely. Nikhef (CT) will not send links to "activate" remote working.
  • Do not respond to any mails you may get with links.
  • You should only enter your Nikhef credentials at the SSO server
  • Are you in doubt about an email or did you already enter your credentials at a suspicious site? Contact the Helpdesk (helpdesk@nikhef.nl) as soon as possible.

Anti-Virus Software for Home Users

If you do not have any anti-virus and/or malware protection software on your personal computer, please install it for added protection against malicious software in these days. We have anti-virus software available that home users can install. If you follow the instructions on how to connect to network drives for Windows, you can find that software under \\beuk.nikhef.nl\wproject\UserSoftware\Symantec_AntiVirus.

If you already have appropriate software from your ISP or pre-installed on your computer, do not install this additional software to avoid conflicts.
