Duo, new IT security layer, has Jan. 29 enrollment deadline for faculty/staff Group 1

As President Myers announced last week, K-State is using a second layer of security called Duo for the university’s online applications and systems, in addition to eID/password sign-in.

K-State password + Duo (second-layer security) = Access

To facilitate implementation, faculty/staff have been assigned to Duo enrollment groups. Members of Group 1 will receive their enrollment email on Tuesday, Jan. 15, with an enrollment deadline Tuesday, Jan. 29.

For security reasons, group lists and enrollment timelines will not be made public.

Enrollment in Duo is very intuitive and should only take 5-10 minutes. Step-by-step enrollment instructions are available on the K-State Duo website. If you need enrollment help, contact the IT Help Desk.

A one-time, onsite Duo Help Desk for Group 1 is scheduled 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 16, in Room 111, Anderson Hall. Members of the IT Help Desk and Client Services will be on hand during the event to provide enrollment help and to answer questions.

Duo enrollment is mandatory. If you are in Group 1 and do not self-enroll, you will experience delays when you try to access K-State’s applications and services on Wednesday, Jan. 30. You will be automatically enrolled in Duo, but will still need to set up your authentication devices.

If you have any questions, contact the IT Help Desk, 785-532-7722, email helpdesk@ksu.edu.
