This page outlines the steps required to enable Multi Factor Authentication (MFA) for the Pulse Secure VPN. Please note that this is mandatory as of May 10th, 2019.

Configuring MFA

The Pulse VPN multi-factor authentication implementation relies on a secondary authentication source to fulfill the MFA requirement. As a result, you will be prompted for credentials twice.

  • First credential: UMIACS password
  • Second credential: Your preferred MFA verification option:
Secondary Password Value: Result
push Send a push verification to your Duo connected device.
phone Send a phone call verification to your Duo connected device.
<press YubiKey> If you have a physical token then you would press the YubiKey for the one time password.

Please note that registering a YubiKey for use with the VPN requires the UMIACS Tech Staff to program it for you. Please contact us if you would like to register a YubiKey for this purpose.
