  1. Make sure your YubiKey device is inserted into the USB port of the device with which you are authenticating
  2. Provide your Miami UniqueID and password
  3. When prompted for your second factor authentication, click Enter a Passcode

  • Important Note
    • If you intend to use a Yubikey when authenticating with Duo to VPN, you must have the YubiKey configured by a Duo Administrator in the Duo Admin console. To make this request, and ask for your YubiKey token to be configured for use with VPN. IT Services will call you back and ask for three pieces of information about your YubiKey — the serial number, private identity and secret key — which you will find in the YubiKey personalization tool
