The MCommunity Sponsor System allows authorized U-M staff members to get uniqnames and create online identities for people who are affiliated with the university but who do not receive uniqnames and online identities through other means.
- Two-Factor Authentication
Two-factor authentication adds a second layer of security, keeping your account secure even if your password is compromised.

IAM provides you with a unique online identity to use in accessing U-M computing resources.

Shibboleth allows people to log in to web resources at other institutions using the ID and password they use at their own institution.
