In February, OIT announced that all matriculated students will be required to use Duo Security’s Two-factor authentication (2FA) when accessing select university services, starting with my.SMU. OIT knew that getting the large student population registered before the April 1 deadline would be a challenge, and started an aggressive campaign to not only make students aware of the coming change but to encourage them to enroll their devices before Duo was enabled. As of this writing, over 4,400 students are newly committed to protecting their accounts with Duo Security. Continue reading Duo: A Success Story

Duo Two-Factor Authentication Coming to Students’ my.SMU
On Monday, April 1, 2019, OIT will begin an initiative to implement two-factor authentication for all SMU students to certain online services. The first such service will be my.SMU. Two-factor authentication utilizes a solution from Duo Security called Duo Mobile.
What is Duo and what does it mean to me?
Duo two-factor authentication (2FA) adds a second layer of security to online services. Verifying your identity using a second factor (like your phone or another mobile device) helps prevent anyone but you from using your SMU account to log in to a protected service, even if they know your password. Basically, Duo assures that only you can access your protected information.

The first system for students to be protected with two-factor authentication is Continue reading Duo Two-Factor Authentication Coming to Students’ my.SMU
