Secure Authentication Toolkit & 2 Factor Authentication

S&T along with other UM campuses, will be implementing new security tools to improve password security.  These new tools will reduce the risk of data becoming compromised should someone learn your university password.

A first step in this process requires that all users “register” or add information into the new Secure Authentication toolkit.  Having current identity information in place is a pre-requisite to enabling multi-factor authentication.

The timeline for all users to register their identify management information is  October 10, 2016 – December 31, 2016 .

To start the registration process and learn more about this initiative, please visit UM System’s website at: https://www.umsystem.edu/ums/is/infosec/how_to_use_the_secure_authentication_toolkit

For questions, please contact the IT Help Desk by calling 573-341-4357 (HELP), visiting the IT Help Desk on the first floor of the library, or submitting a ticket online at http://help.mst.edu
