What is OTP (One Time Password), and how does it work?
OTP (One Time Password) is an authentication procedure used for secure access to institutional or sensitive data at Indiana University. It uses a physical device, called an OTP token, to help verify your identity to the authenticating service.
An OTP token is a small device, roughly the size of a USB drive, with a single button and a display; they are compact and waterproof. The tokens are DIGIPASS GO 6 authenticators, manufactured by Vasco Data Security.
Alternative devices with additional features for the visually impaired are available via special order (these devices are more expensive).
