Use of 2-factor Authentication
Hi. NYU is doing a bit of investigation that will likely lead to piloting use of
2-factor authentication for selected services and/or users in the coming year. It
would be helpful for us to get some quick, current snapshots of where other institutions
are with respect to implementing 2-factor. So if you feel inclined, could you answer
these questions (and add any other comments you wish)? If there's anything to
summarize back to the list, I'll certainly do so.
Thanks - Gary Chapman, NYU / Identity Services
1. Name of institution
2. Are you using 2-factor authentication at your institution?
3. If not, do you have plans to do so in future?
4. If you are using 2-factor...
a) how broadly? for specific applications, for specific audiences?
b) what vendor are you using?
c) what technology are you using for your 2nd factor (card / phone / etc)?
5. Advice? Warnings? Comments in general?
