Second Factor With Your Phone
InCommon and Duo Security offers affordable pricing for phone-based second-factor authentication, including a site license for faculty/staff or faculty/staff/students (see your colleagues that have a Duo site license)
Easy as 1 - 2 - 3
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. No muss, no fuss, no complexity.
Duo also offers a full range of services for those without smart phones, including text messages, phone calls, and hardware tokens (for those without access to a phone).
