Two-Factor Authentication

Getting Started

To add robust two-factor authentication to your application or service, just follow these steps:

Step 1

Decide which service, system or applicantion you want to protect and request an integration. An integration is what links the Duo service to your resource.

To request an integration with Texas A&M's Duo service, complete and submit a request form:

All information on the form should be typed except the signatures. If you are uncertain about how to answer a question, please email idm-support@tamu.edu for assistance.

The form is printed, signed by the requester and mailed to the Identity Management Office, MS 3374, faxed to 979.845.6090 or emailed to idm-support@tamu.edu.

Note: CAS will have it's own Duo integration, so web applications relying on CAS for authentication will not need to request a separate integration.

Step 2

Use Duo's documentation to configure the Duo integration on your service, system or appliance.

Step 3

Enroll your users in Duo.

For all groups except IT professionals, users must have a NetID and password to use Duo Two-factor Authentication.

NetID account holders are able to self-enroll in Duo Two-factor Authentication via the NetID Two-Factor Authentication application. Account holders wishing to use a hardware token device will need to purchase the token at sell.tamu.edu and then go to the Identity Management Office to pick up the token.

Step 4

Start authenticating!
