Multifactor Authentication at Yale
Participation in the Yale community requires that you use Multifactor Authentication (MFA) to access key resources here at Yale. (see What is Yale's MFA policy?)
If you use any application that requires the Central Authentication Services (CAS) or Yale's Virtual Private Network (VPN), then you will need to know more about Multifactor Authentication or MFA
WHAT IS MFA?
MFA adds a step to the log-in process you use to access some of Yale's networks and resources and requires a user to prove his or her identity after entering a NetID and password by responding to a prompt using a mobile device, landline, tablet or token.
A more complete description can be found in this short video
And also in this in this announcement from Richard D. Mikelinich, Yale's Chief Information Security Officer.

Enrollment of a device is the first step with MFA
Now that my first device is enrolled...
- Device management is done by going to Duo via our VPN site at access.yale.edu
- How do I authenticate with sites at Yale, including VPN with AnyConnect?
- Can I authenticate without a smart phone?
- How do I add another device?
- What happens if my only device is my mobile phone, and now I've replaced it with a new one with the same number?
Now that all my devices are in Duo...
But I still can't find the information I need...
