Your ChemNet token is used to gain access to some parts of the Department network, such as the ChemNet wireless network and the OpenVPN service (see the links for specific details on using those services). The intention of the ChemNet token is that you can safely save it on your computer, mobile phone etc., unlike passwords which you should never save unencryped on a computer. Another advantage of using your ChemNet token for network access is that you if you lose a device, you can reset the token without needing to also change your Admitto password.
