GO Multi-Factor Authentication


  • This Task has been designed for use by Faculty, Staff, Students (current). For Faculty, Staff, Students (current)
Multi-factor authentication, or MFA, is an IT security measure that provides an additional layer of security when logging in or performing transactions online. It achieves this by requiring more than one form of authentication to access computing systems. The forms must fall into at least two of three authentication factor categories -- something you know, something you have, and/or something you are. UMD is implementing MFA at the university on a system-by-system basis. The Kuali Financial System will be among the first enterprise systems to require MFA. The university's MFA requirements are supported by the Duo Security System.
