M-Token and Two-Factor Authentication at U-M

ITS has extended the U-M Two-Factor Authentication service to University departments that want to leverage it to enhance access security for their own departmental systems or services.

The U-M Two-Factor Authentication can integrate authentication in several ways. As ITS develops the U-M Two-Factor Authentication service for implementation with departmental systems, this page will provide more information about integrating it with access control technologies, including SSH and Cosign for the Web, Windows, and so on.

Credit Card Processing to Require Two-Factor Authentication for Remote Access

Departments that have servers that contain credit card numbers and related information must implement Two-Factor Authentication for remote access to comply with Payment Card Industry (PCI) standards. This compliance requirement is an important reason why ITS made the Two-Factor Authentication service available to the entire University.
