Unexpected Hyak login change:

Yesterday the UW Payroll people turned on the two-step authentication through an iPhone/Android app called Duo. I thought this just hooked in with my UNet ID for things like payroll and myuw related things, but apparently it extends to logging in to Hyak also.

When I logged in to Hyak this morning, I was greeted with this different password prompt.

which popped up the Duo app on my phone, asking me to approve or deny a connection to hyak.uw.edu. I didn’t have to use the Entrust token one time key anymore, so maybe in the future we won’t have to request these for new users who are using the 2SA system through Duo?
