eToken Migration Project Update

Sent on behalf of Information Security – Information Technology Services

Dear eToken users,

As you may be aware, eToken authentication for high security logins, including AMS, ROSI, ROSI Files, Rocket Shuttle, StarRez and Unit VPNs, will migrate to UTORMFA on November 27.

UTORMFA has already been adopted by over 11,000 members of the U of T community. UTORMFA, powered by DUO, is a software based multi-factor authentication method that authenticates user logins via prompts sent to a user’s phone. This authentication method is easy to use, quick to set up and secure. If you haven’t already done so, sign up for UTORMFA today.

In preparation for this migration, your local IT administrator(s) will be deploying a configuration update for Cisco AnyConnect to your computer before November 8. After the deployment, you will see the current AdminVPN ( and the new AdminVPN ( This new will be fully activated on November 27 – please continue to use until this date. 

If you do not have a local IT administrator, you can submit a ticket through Remote Access Help in the Enterprise Service Centre.

If you are a Digital Workplace client, please know that the Digital Workplace team will be responsible for deploying the configuration to managed workstations.

If you have any questions about the UTORMFA project, or would like our team to visit one of your divisional meetings to provide an update on the project, send a message to
