SecurePurdue Token - Boiler Key
The Boiler Key is a convenient means of significantly improving the security of protected computer systems. The BoilerKey is a small electronic device that displays a series of six digits that change every sixty seconds. A personal identification number, combined with the six digits, are used in place of a password to gain access to computer applications and systems.
BoilerKeys are provided to Purdue employees for their use when accessing computer systems that contain sensitive or restricted data. 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.
