Duo Security

IS&T provides access to Duo, a two-factor authentication application that leverages landlines and smartphones as an "Approve" or "Deny" system to identify users. Duo is a self-service web application for Touchstone-enabled web applications at MIT.

Passwords

Passwords protect and limit access to your personal data and to IT resources at MIT.

If your password is over a year old, you will be required to change it when you renew your MIT certificate(s). Note: IS&T will never ask you to send or reset your password via email.

Virtual Private Network (VPN)

The remote access Virtual Private Network (VPN) service provides added privacy and security for your computing activities as well as the ability to access protected MIT resources that require a MITnet IP address.

The Prisma Access VPN service, a cloud-based VPN offering, provides a secure connection between your computing device and the cloud VPN gateway using the GlobalProtect VPN client.

GlobalProtect replaces MIT’s legacy Cisco AnyConnect client, which has been retired.

Touchstone Authentication

MIT Touchstone is a single sign-on web authentication service that allows members of the MIT community to log in to participating MIT and federated websites using their MIT credentials. When using a Touchstone-enabled application, your credentials will never be passed to the application service.
