Duo Security

What is Two-Factor?

Two-factor authentication (2FA) means that when you log in, you provide two types of proof of identity.  The advantage of two-factor authentication [2FA] is that an attacker who obtains your password will not be able to log in as you without your Duo option.  For your two-factor authentication, IWU requires your Username/Password and Duo Security’s Authentication system.  With Duo, you can select multiple methods of identity verification.

Applications that require 2FA include:

- All Office365 cloud apps 

- IWU Portal

- VPN

How do I enroll?

If you have not previously setup Duo security, when you login to the IWU portal or Office365 applications, you will be prompted to setup DUO security for 2FA.

Options for Duo setup include:
