Two Factor Security

This article is a summary of the two-factor security procedures at UW and with specific notes on how to use them to gain access to ARCC resources.

What is Two-Factor (aka: 2f) authentication?
Two-factor adds another layer of security to the login process. The first factor is your username and password (referred to as the "Something-you-know" layer). The second factor, the "Something-you-have" layer, involves providing a one-time password via a Yubikey or a mobile device.
