Setting your password

Each user is responsible for maintaining the secrecy of any passwords used to access his account or service. ITS deploys the same set of passwords rules as does the central campus (Andrew). Please follow the guidelines below to create a strong password.

A password is considered to be a strong password when it is difficult to guess the password in a reasonably short period of time either through human guessing or the use of specialized software.
