2FA Setup with a Security Key (Yubikey, Feitian, etc)




In order to use a security key with Duo, make sure you have the following:


Step One: Login to Passport York
Go to Manage My Services and log in to Passport York

Step Two: Welcome Screen

To go through the setup process, please click Setup. Otherwise, click on Setup Later. You have up-to 14 business days to setup a device before login is permitted.

Click Start setup to begin setup your device.

Step 3: Choose Your Authentication Device Type

Select Security Key and click Continue






Make sure that you are not blocking pop-up windows for the enrollment site before continuing






Step 4: Insert and tap your security key







Depending on your security key, you will need to tap, insert, or press a button on your device to proceed.

When enrolling your security key, you'll be prompted to tap to enroll your security key (possibly more than once). You may also be asked if you want to allow Duo to access information about your security key (click Allow or Proceed as applicable).
You will see whether the security key identification was successful or not.

Step 5: Security Key registered

Click on Continue to Login

Step 6: Authenticate

Helpful tip: Enable the 30-day "Remember Me" option by checking the box at login time to reduce how often 2FA is required on a particular trusted device. Never enable this option on public or shared devices.
