Does the MFA registration have to be done? Can it be done without?
All students, employees and external persons who wish to access resources of the Lucerne University of Applied Sciences and Arts must complete the MFA registration.
When is an MFA confirmation required?
An MFA confirmation is always required when a logon to a service of the university takes place outside the network of the Lucerne University of Applied Sciences and Arts.
Note: For access from outside the university network (e.g. home office), a VPN connection with Pulse Secure is recommended. In this case, only a one-time MFA confirmation is required.
For an external connection without VPN, an MFA confirmation is required each time you log on to a service.
