A important use of your NetID is for authentication that allows access to Duke computing resources. Some resources require NetID authentication when accessed from a non-Duke IP address.
Authentication modes vary.
- Many services present a custom login screen or dialog that prompts for a userid and password.
For other resources a Shibboleth secure web browser boilerplate presents into which you must enter your NetID and its password. When Multi-Factor Authentication comes into play, the Shibboleth screen presents options to select one of the forms of MFA configured for the user.
In short, know your NetID and NetID password. Contact the OIT Help Desk (684-2200) or visit the LINK service desk with any questions.
