Subject: NetID+ Plus Now Available for Opt-In

Date: April 7, 2014

NetID+ is now available as an optional dual factor authentication service for UA faculty, staff, and students, which adds an additional layer of protection for various University applications. To opt in to NetID+, go to the NetID+ self-service website.

Once the opt-in process is completed, subscribers can enable the "Global NetID+" setting, which will enforce second-factor authentication for all sites utilizing UA WebAuth or Shibboleth authentication services for login – such as CatMail, D2L and UAccess. NetID+ users will be presented with a "NetID+ Required" dialog that presents them with a list of all their registered devices, and the methods supported for second-factor authentication.

After logging in with their password, subscribers can then register one or more devices – smartphone, cellphone, and tablet or landline telephone – to set up as a "second factor" authentication.

Each time a user who has opted to use NetID+ logs in to a WebAuth or Shibboleth-enabled site with their NetID they will be presented with a "NetID+ Required" message. The message will present the user with a list of all their registered devices, and the methods supported for second-factor authentication – ranging from the Duo Push feature of the Duo Mobile app, to one-time passcodes delivered via SMS text message or automated voice callback.

To summarize the process, after entering a NetID and password, subscribers will:

*choose a device where an authentication code should be sent, like a smartphone or tablet

*retrieve the code sent to their device via push notification, SMS text message or automated phone call

*enter the code into the computer to complete the log-in
