InCommon and Duo Security
On June 1, InCommon and Duo Security began offering phone-based, two-factor authentication to the higher education community with a low-cost site license. To prove that a login attempt is genuine, Duo Security leverages a user’s mobile phone—something almost everyone carries on today’s college campus. When it’s time to log in, users (1) enter their username and password as they normally would, then (2) they’re contacted by Duo via their phone. After confirming the login (3) users will be logged in, just as they normally would. Visit www.incommon.org/duo for more information.
