2-Step Login

Two-Step Login provides an additional layer of security when you log into systems that contain sensitive data. Two-Step Login, also known as two-factor authentication, helps protect sensitive data and guard against increasingly sophisticated email and online scams (e.g., phishing attacks) that can leave you vulnerable to identity theft. Like similar services offered by Google, Apple and Facebook, you log in by entering your username and passphrase and then confirm your login with an enrolled device, like your smartphone.

The term domain can refer either to a local subnetwork or to descriptors for sites on the Internet (e.g.,  On the Internet, a domain is part of every network address, including website addresses, email addresses, and addresses for other Internet protocols.

A domain is a sub network made up of a group of clients and servers under the control of one central security database. Within a domain, users authenticate once to a centralized server known as a domain controller, rather than repeatedly authenticating to individual servers and services. Individual servers and services accept the user based on the approval of the domain controller.

Domain User

A domain user is one whose username and password are stored on a domain controller rather than the computer the user is logging into. When you log in as a domain user, the computer asks the domain controller what privileges are assigned to you. When the computer receives an appropriate response from the domain controller, it logs you in with the proper permissions and restrictions.
