OTV code generator is a hardware device used to generate a one-time verification code. This code is part of the two-factor authentication system, used as an additional security measure when signing in to Ryerson web applications via Ryerson’s Central Authentication Service (CAS).
At present, all faculty and staff at Ryerson University can use the OTV code generator. Even though it is primarily made available for the convenience of users without the supported mobile devices, it can be used by all users to get the Ryerson Authentication code conveniently.
Note: Only one OTV code generator can be assigned per user. If lost, it has to be revoked in the system, before you can purchase another one.
As soon as you realize that you have lost the OTV code generator, you will need to get your Two-Factor authentication revoked for this device. You will be able to do it yourself if you can login to my.ryerson portal without using OTV code (you registered your OTV code for 'all applications' as in step 6 under section 'How to Activate and Use OTV Code Generator'). If not, ask CCS Help Desk at ext. 6806 or at firstname.lastname@example.org at your earliest convenience.
