Prerequisites

  • A smart phone with the Duo mobile app downloaded.

Enabling MFA Authentication

  1. Visit https://vpn.umiacs.umd.edu/mfa and login and complete the Duo setup for your account. The remaining steps assume you are using a mobile phone as your other factor.

  3. Type `push` into the password field on the second authentication box, tick "Save settings", and then click Connect. You should then receive a push to your mobile device to complete authentication. This will occur every time you connect to the VPN going forward.
