Benefits of formatting ISU Extension and Outreach websites with a more minimalist approach and what specific changes can be made to websites.
Thursday, February 22, 2018
Okta is going to change the look and feel of the login page when you sign into MyExtension, Office 365, CyBox and other Iowa State and ISU Extension and Outreach resources. Okta also gives you the ability to add (at a later date) something called multi-factor authentication to your account. Multi-factor authentication adds protection to your account by requiring a second verification in addition to your password. This second verification can be an app on your phone, a code sent via text message, a voice call or a small physical device called a Yubikey. The look and feel portion of Okta will be rolling out on March 1, 2018. Currently, multi-factor authentication is optional and can be turned on in the settings in Okta. For more information, watch the webinar with Deb Coates, EIT manager.
