Two-factor authentication enhances the security of your online accounts by using your smartphone to verify your identity.


UNL ITS Security requires application developers and server administrators to use two-factor authentication for root-level access.

We now provide a very easy to use 2-factor authentication service called DUO Security.  Duo Security is scalable and can  integrate with almost every IT service on campus.
