XSEDE MFA documentation needs update. See attached screenshot.

Needed updates include:

  • Remove mention of duo.darter.nics.xsede.org since Darter was retired in 2016.
  • Add reference to idp.xsede.org.
  • Update documentation to reflect that XSEDE MFA isn't just about SSH anymore.


There are comments for XCI-714 that can be viewed with XSEDE authentication.
