Please see https://guide.duo.com/universal-prompt for details about managing your Duo MFA options using the Duo Universal Prompt.

Initial Enrollment in Duo for ACCESS

To enroll with Duo for ACCESS:

  1. Visit https://cilogon.org/me/ and click the “Delete ALL” button.
  2. Visit https://registry.access-ci.org/registry/auth/logout and click the “LOGIN” button.
  3. In the “Select an Identity Provider” box, choose “ACCESS CI (XSEDE)” and click the “Log On” button.
  4. Enter your ACCESS username and password on the idp.access-ci.org login page. (To set/reset your ACCESS password, visit https://identity.access-ci.org/password-reset.)
  5. You will be prompted to enroll in Duo. Install the Duo security app on your phone and configure it to use “Duo Push”. We do not recommend the “Phone Call” option, because it is unreliable.
  6. You should see the “ACCESS User Identity Dashboard”.

Now you should be able to log in to any other ACCESS website such as ACCESS Allocations.
