In an effort to increase protection and security, the Information Security Office (ISO) is implementing the use of Duo two-factor authentication for Case Western Reserve University users of the HCM and FIN applications.
On Monday, Feb. 5, logging in to HCM and FIN will officially require Duo Security, and un-enrolled users will be prompted to enroll in Duo when attempting to log in.
What is two-factor authentication?
Two-factor authentication offers an additional security measure to verify your identity in addition to your network ID and password/phrase. Duo Security provides a unique code generated by the Duo Mobile app on your smartphone as the “second factor” (other code-receiving methods also are available).
ISO staff members are available to help you learn about and enroll in Duo.
Training/enrollment sessions will be held:
Thursday, Jan. 18, from 10 to 11:30 a.m. in Crawford Hall, Room 720;
Thursday, Jan. 25, from 10:30 a.m. to noon in Adelbert Hall’s Toepfer Room; and
Thursday, Feb. 1, from 9:30 to 11 a.m. in Crawford Hall, Room 720.
Attendees should bring their smartphone, basic mobile phone, landline phone number, tablet or laptop to enroll their preferred device/method of contact. Other options include a personal U2F (FIDO) token or hardware tokens provided to faculty by University Technology.
