Duo Two-factor Authentication and Single Sign-On for Esther

In order to streamline services and minimize the number of different login credentials needed to access Rice technology services, many of Rice’s services have moved to Single Sign On (SSO), which allows you to log in using your NetID with Duo two-factor authentication. These services include: VPN (Virtual Private Network) and mynetid.rice.edu (Online Account Management System).

Duo Security is a two-factor authentication service that provides additional security for access to university and personal data and accounts. Duo offers several options for authenticating users: a mobile push notification, one-button verification of identity to a smartphone, as well as voice and SMS verification.
