Using Duo with a Hardware Token

Hardware tokens are most basic way of authenticating.

To authenticate using a hardware token, click the Enter a Passcode button. Press the button on your hardware token to generate a new passcode, type it into the space provided, and click Log In (or type the generated passcode in the "second password" field). Using the "Device:" drop-down menu to select your token is not necessary before entering the passcode.

If you have a Yubikey token, click into the passcode entry field and tap your Yubikey to generate and submit a passcode.

Tokens can get "out of sync" if the button is pressed too many times in a row and the generated passcodes aren't used for login.

Contact the IT Security Office if your token stops working.
