This page is a draft and will be updated as the process for requesting and using YubiKeys will be improved in FY2021-2022.
This page will help you understand what you need to know to log in (AKA authenticate) and use these UIs.
More detailed documentation can be found at CAS-SSO.
What you need
To log in, you'll need
- A Wikimedia Developer Account (this creates an LDAP account for you).
- Membership in certain LDAP groups.
Usually, membership in either the
nda LDAP group will suffice to authorize you to access most UIs. To request membership in an LDAP group, open a Phabricator ticket with the LDAP-Access-Requests tag and specify your Developer Account username and which LDAP group you'd like to be in.
Enabling 2FA using a YubiKey
WMF is slowly in the process of securing the SSO login process using 2FA. As of 2021-06, our only supported form of 2FA is with a hardware device using Universal 2nd Factor (U2F). WMF ITS will issue YubiKeys for this purpose.
Getting a YubiKey
- Figure out which YubiKey product is right for you.
- Email ITS at email@example.com and ask them to send you a YubiKey, linking the product you'd like.
- ITS will purchase and ship you a YubiKey.
Using your YubiKey
- Open a Phabricator ticket with the LDAP-Access-Requests tag to ask SRE to enable YubiKey authentication.
- Once done
From here on out, whenever you authenticate to the SSO portal you will be prompted to authenticate with your YubiKey after entering your username and password.
