To sign up for Duo, you will need to select a device to sign up with.  Each of these devices have their own sign-up process:

Mobile Device

Hardware Token

Security Key

  • Security keys are small devices that can be plugged into USB ports directly. Security Keys are useful for accessing browser-based authentications, such as those seen on Google Chrome. This authentication method does not currently work for connecting to SSH or other interactive logins.

Touch ID 

  • Touch ID is used as fingerprint identification on some Mac devices. You may use some Mac devices as a Duo authentication method, however be aware that it only works for browser-based authentications. This authentication method does not work for interactive logins, such as SSH.

For assistance with Duo, please contact your department's IT Helpdesk, or the IS Service Desk
