Duo enrollment for HCM and FIN to be implemented Feb. 5

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.

Through Feb. 4, users may opt in to use Duo by registering at the self-service enrolling site. Learn more at

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).

Training sessions

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.
