SecurePurdue Token - BoilerKey
The Purdue BoilerKey is a convenient means of significantly improving the security of protected
computer systems. The BoilerKey is an implementation of two-factor authentication, a system that requires
two forms of verification of identity before a person can access protected computer resources. In
addition, codes that are consistently changing and may be used one time only, provide additional
layers of security that are capable of resisting many types of malicious attempts to gain access.
At Purdue, these two forms of verification are something you know (career account and either a password or PIN) and something you have (a BoilerKey token or an application on your mobile phone). These two items are used in place of your password alone to gain access to computer applications and systems.
The BoilerKey comes in two forms, one of which is a small electronic device (known as a hard token) that displays a series of six digits when activated and the other is an application for your smartphone (known as a soft token) that displays the six digit code.
