What is an eToken?
- The eToken is the University’s multi-factor authentication product, and is used to connect to high-value applications like AMS, ARBOR, and ROSI.
- It is a small USB device that is plugged into your computer or laptop when you require access to these systems.
- Multifactor Authentication (MFA) is a method of authentication that provides high assurance of identity and is often defined as a combination of something you have (the eToken) with something you know (your UTORID and password). This method of authentication provides higher assurance of identity than use of UTORID and password alone.
Who needs an eToken?
Information Security and Enterprise Architecture supplies the hardware to departments. The department distributes and manages the use of the eToken at a departmental level.
The services and applications that make use of eTokens at the University are ever expanding. Applications that make use of the eToken are able to provide users directly with technical instruction.
Here is a list of enterprise level applications that currently make use of eToken authentication. If you are University staff who use one of the systems listed below it is likely you will need an eToken.
Please Note: Various departments have integrated eToken authentication into departmental specific applications or services. Your business Officer will notify you of any departmental requirements for eToken use. The list below is not a complete list.
