The Central HPC Cluster requires multi-factor authentication to be set up prior to logging on. Please submit a request to firstname.lastname@example.org or opening a new ticket in the help system (Request Type: IMSS > Information Security > Duo Request) with your Access.Caltech username, choice of 2-factor device, and your cell phone number if you are using the DUO app.
The DUO smartphone app for iPhone and Android are the most popular way to use 2-factor with the central cluster. Regardless of phone, you should have the Duo Mobile app installed prior to making the request to security, as an activation link will be sent to your smart device from the security group.
