  8. Privileged Account: An Account that is authorized to perform security-relevant functions that an ordinary Account is not authorized to perform.
  9. Single Sign-On (SSO): An authentication process that allows an Authorized User to access multiple applications with one set of login credentials. SSO is a common procedure in enterprises, where a client accesses multiple resources connected to a local area network (LAN).
  10. User: A member of the University community, including but not limited to Staff and Faculty, and other individuals performing services on behalf of University, including Contractors, volunteers and other individuals who may have a need to access, use or control University Data.

IV. Authentication

  1. Any service, application or Information System, whether on-premise or in the cloud, that contains WISP protected information, especially PI or PHI; OR is accessed by a large group of employees (20 or more), must use Single Sign-on authentication.
    • If the service or application is being provisioned by a business unit, the unit must engage University Systems to work with the provider to enable SSO.
    • If SSO is not supported by the service or application, it will not be approved for use by the university.
    • See Section V for exceptions.
  2. Multi-factor authentication (MFA) must be used to access University resources.
  3. Passwords must be constructed in accordance with the minimum requirements as listed below:
    • Authorized User Account passwords must meet a minimum length of 8 characters.
    • Administrative and Privileged Account passwords must meet a minimum of 10 characters.
    • Passwords must contain a mix of alphanumeric characters. Passwords must not consist of all digits, all special characters, or all alphabetic characters.
    • Automated controls must ensure that passwords are changed at 90-day intervals for both general users and administrative-level accounts.
    • NetIDs associated with a password must be disabled for a period of time after 10 consecutive failed login attempts. A minimum of 30 minutes is required for the reset period.
    • Passwords must not be the same as the NetID.
    • Passwords must not be displayed on screens.
    • Users must not share passwords.
    • Initial passwords and password resets must be issued pre-expired forcing the user to change the password upon first use.
    • Password reuse must be limited by not allowing the last 10 passwords to be reused. In addition, the password must be at least 2 days old in order to be voluntarily changed.
    • Access will be disabled 90 days past the date that a password expired if not changed.
    • Access will be disabled after 30 days of creation if NetID is not claimed.
    • Expired passwords must be changed before any other system activity is allowed.
  4. Server Password Protocol
    • If, at any time, a member of the Community is granted permission to install a server, and access to that server is restricted via Login, and if that process is granted SSO exception through section VII., that system can not hold passwords in clear text. That system must use an approved irreversible cryptographic transform to protect its users’ passwords.

Two-factor Authentication

Two-factor authentication also referred to as multi-factor authentication, provides an additional layer of security when logging in to a website. Two-factor authentication is becoming the standard in cybersecurity. Google, Apple, and other services all have their two-factor authentication methods. In short, passwords are no longer sufficient in protecting our sensitive data; we’ve got to add another layer of security to our accounts.

Common FAQ’s for DUO Authentication

    • DUO Push – if you have the DUO Mobile App installed on your smartphone or tablet, you can receive a push notification. From the app, you can approve or deny the login attempt.
    • Passcodes via DUO Mobile App – If you have the DUO Mobile app installed, you can receive a single passcode by tapping the FDU logo in the mobile app. This code must be used immediately.
    • Passcodes via SMS (Faculty/Staff Only) – users can receive a one-time use code via text message. To get you a one-time code, click Enter Passcode, then click on the blue button “Text me new codes.”  These codes do not expire, and they are valid until used.    You do not have to have a smartphone for this option.
    • Phone Call (Faculty/Staff Only) – you can receive a phone call on your mobile phone or landline phone. The call will give instructions on approving or denying the login attempt.
  • DUO is required for all FDU Staff, Faculty, and Students.

  • If you opt-out of the DUO Mobile Application push notifications, there are a variety of passcode options to utilize as your second verification method.

    • Passcodes via DUO Mobile App – If you have the DUO Mobile app installed, you can receive a single passcode by tapping the FDU logo in the mobile app. This code must be used immediately.

     

    • Passcodes via SMS (Faculty/Staff Only) – users can receive a one-time use code via text message. To get you one-time code click Enter Passcode, then click on the blue button “Text me new codes.”These codes do not expire, and they are valid until used. You do not have to have a smartphone for this option.

     

  • Selecting this option will allow you to bypass DUO authentication for the next 60 days. This only works if cookies are enabled, and you are logging in from the same computer and browser. You will still be prompted to verify once – with your username and password. You will not be able to access your settings on that particular browser during the 60 days. Please note that if you have tools or policies running that regularly delete or clean cookies, the remember me feature will not work. If you do need to access your settings (perhaps to add another device), just try another browser or visit the FDU Self-Service Portal. Remember me will not work if your browser is set to private browsing mode.

  • The remember me feature relies on browser cookies. For remember me to work, your Internet browser must allow cookies to be stored. Visit your browser content settings to ensure cookies are being stored. Some departments on campus do not allow cookies to be stored. If the remember me feature does not work on your browser, check with desktop support in your area.

  • If you do not have your device with you, you can obtain a batch of temporary passcodes. To obtain a temporary passcode, call the Fairleigh Dickinson University Technical Assistance Center (UTAC).  Each of the passcodes can only be used once and will expire in 7 days.

    NOTE: If you have lost your device, please report it to the Fairleigh Dickinson University Technical Assistance Center (UTAC).  We want to ensure someone else does not maliciously authenticate your account with your device.

  • DUO is available to all faculty,staff, and Students. At this time, DUO is not available to FDU retirees, past employees, or alumni.

  • Yes, the passcode option on the DUO app does not require WiFi or cellular connectivity, it even works on airplane mode. To use this option, visit the DUO app on your smartphone, and tap the key icon to obtain a passcode. Enter the passcode into the DUO prompt when logging into any website that requires DUO authentication.

  • DUO Authentication is required by any application the utilizes the university Single Sign-On (SSO) service.  Examples of some websites that require DUO authentication are listed below.

    • WebAdvisior
    • WebCampus
    • Office365 (Office365.fdu.edu)
    • Blackboard
    • Zoom
  • You may have trouble receiving push requests if there are network issues between your phone and Duo’s service. Many phones have difficulty determining whether to use the Wi-Fi or cellular data channel when checking for push requests and simply turning the phone to airplane mode and back to normal operating mode again often resolves these types of issues, if there is a reliable internet connection available. Similarly, the issue may be resolved by turning off the Wi-Fi connection on your device and using the cellular data connection.

    Check the time and date on your phone and make sure they are correct. If the date and time on your phone are manually set, try changing your device’s configuration to sync date and time automatically with the network.

    iOS users can run a troubleshooting tool from within Duo Mobile version 3.32.0 or later. To run the tool:

    1. Open the Duo Mobile app on your iOS device and tap the Edit button in the top left of the accounts list screen, then tap the name of the account for you aren’t receiving push requests.
    2. Next, tap the Get Started button in the “Missing Notifications?” section of the “Account Details” screen.
    3. Duo Mobile performs the test. If any step fails, you’ll receive further troubleshooting suggestions. After taking the suggested actions, press “Run test again” to retry.

    The steps that Push Troubleshooting performs automatically are as follows:

    • Check device settings.
    • Check internet connectivity.
    • Check that the device can contact Duo’s cloud service.
    • Attempts to send a test Duo Push notification.

    Should none of these actions help, see the Duo Knowledge Base for additional iOS and Android troubleshooting steps.

    If you can’t get Duo Push working on your own, you can log in with a passcode generated by the Duo Mobile app and send a new activation link to your phone.

    If you’ve tried the suggestions here but can’t get Duo Push working or reactivate your device yourself, please contact the Fairleigh Dickinson University Technical Assistance Center (UTAC).

  • Press the red “X to deny access to your account, then promptly change your FDU NetID password.

  • Yes! Visit the app store on your smartphone to download DUO Mobile.

    DUO for iOS >

    DUO for Android >

    NOTE: Google Play Services are required to receive push notifications on Android. Users without Google Play Services installed will have to “fetch” by swiping down in the DUO Mobile app.

    1. If your phone number has not changed, login to FDU Self-Service Portal then choose the “Call my Phone” option.
    2. Choose your device from the list, and then click “Device Options” next to your phone.
    3. Next click the “Reactivate Duo Mobile” button (you will need to install the Duo app on your phone to proceed). Then follow the instructions to activate DUO Mobile on your new device.

If you do not have your device with you, don’t worry. You can contact the Fairleigh Dickinson University Technical Assistance Center (UTAC) for a temporary passcode. These passcodes can be entered in the DUO prompt on your computer.

Warning Warning

After June 30, 2023, Transport Layer Security (TLS) 1.0 and 1.1 connection requests to Duo will not receive a response, resulting in blocked multi-factor authentication.

Who will be affected?

This may affect FDU community users using Windows 7, Windows 8.1, Android Devices with Android OS version 9 or lower, and Apple devices with iOS versions that don’t support TLS 1.2.

Check if you are using the supported endpoints by reading the information below:

Windows

Supported Windows operating system (OS) versions will support TLS 1.2 by default. If you are running a supported Windows OS, no action is required.

Unsupported Versions for Windows Operating Systems

Note

If your operating system was manually changed to disable TLS 1.2 for some reason, connection requests will fail. Verify your system is properly configured for TLS 1.2 with the suggested steps below.

Verifying TLS 1.2 on your Operating System

Check OS Version

  • Open the Windows Search box and type “About your PC” and click on “Open
  • Under Windows Specifications, check which edition and version of Windows your device is running

Enabling TLS 1.2 on your Operating System

If your operating system was manually changed to disable TLS 1.2 for some reason, you can verify or configure your system for TLS 1.2.

Before making any changes, create a backup of the registry:

  1. In the Windows Registry Editor, locate and click the “Protocols registry key” or “subkey
    that needs to be backed up
  2. Click “File”, then “Export”
  3. In the Export Registry File dialog box, select the filename and location of where to save the backup
  4. Click “Save”

After creating a backup of the registry, follow the steps below to enable TLS 1.2 on your system:

  1. Click the Start menu, type “regedit” and press the Enter key. The Registry Editor window should be opened.
  2. Navigate to follow the registry path: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\SecurityProviders\SCHANNEL\Protocols
  3. Check if the subkey of TLS v1.2 is enabled for both the server and the client. Each protocol’s state is controlled by two keys: Enabled and DisabledByDefault
  4. Make sure the Enabled value is 1 and the DisabledByDefault value is 0 or missing, the protocol is enabled.
  5. If the Enabled value is 1 but the DisabledByDefault value is 1, the protocol is disabled by default – it will not be used unless another host explicitly requests it during negotiation.
  6. If the Enabled value is 0, the protocol is disabled
  7. Restart the system to ensure the new settings take effect

DUO Mobile

Supported Duo Mobile applications running on supported OS versions will support TLS 1.2+ by default. If you are running a supported Duo Mobile application on a supported OS, no action is required.

  • Supported Android OS versions: Android 10.0 and greater
  • Supported iOS versions: iOS 14.0 and greater

Note

Using a mobile device with unsupported versions can still receive DUO push or generate one-time passcode as before, but it will prevent you from logging in to any systems that are accessed through our FDU Single Sign On Login Page.

Web Browsers

Common web browsers like Google Chrome, Microsoft Edge, Mozilla Firefox, Opera, etc. with their latest version are supporting TLS 1.2.

Note

If your browser was manually changed to disable TLS 1.2 for some reason, connection requests will fail. Please verify your browser is properly configured for TLS 1.2 with the suggested steps below.

Check TLS Support on a Web Browser

Chrome and Microsoft Edge

  1. In the Windows menu search box, type “Internet Options”
  2. In the Internet Properties window, on the Advanced tab, scroll down to the Security section
  3. Make sure the “User TLS 1.2” checkbox is checked
  1. Click “OK” and restart the browser

Mozilla Firefox

  1. Open the Mozilla Firefox Browser
  2. In the address bar, type “about:config” and press “Enter
  3. In the Search Field type “tls”. Find and double-click the entry for “security.tls. version. min”
  4. Make sure the integer value is 3 to force a minimum protocol of TLS 1.2
  1. Click “OK” and restart the browser
close

We understand that upgrading your device is not always an option. In these instances, you can still use Duo Passcodes to perform multi-factor authentication.

  1. To use this method, select “Enter a passcode” upon receiving your browser’s Duo security prompt
  1. Next, open the Duo app and click “Show”. This will provide a six-digit passcode which you can enter into the browser prompt
  1. Enter the six-digit passcode from the DUO app and click “Log in”
