Password information

To help keep your account secure, the University has implemented new requirements to strengthen the security of our passwords. These new requirements may make it harder for some people to choose a new password. To minimize frustration, we are providing you with this guide. A key change is that all password changes are now checked against a database of over 600 million breached (stolen) passwords. These are passwords that have been stolen by hackers from various services (such as LinkedIn) and made available on the Internet. If you try to set a password that is in this database, the password change will not be successful. The new requirements are:

  • Minimum length: 8 characters. It is advisable to have a password/passphrase that is more than 8 character in length.
  • Passwords: Passwords must contain at least one character from 3 out of 4 of the following categories – numbers, lower case letters, upper case letters, symbols.  Avoid using words that are found in the dictionary.
    • E.g: A1pp23le$ (acceptable)
    • E.g: AppLe$123 (not acceptable as "apple" is a word in the dictionary)
  • Passphrases: A sentence or several random words like, “ilikeswimming” You don't need to include special characters and you can include spaces in between the words. e.g. "i like swimming"

Security: The password must not have been exposed in a previous data breach. We also check variations of passwords against that list. We eliminate symbols, numbers, punctuation, and common character substitutions before checking for a breached password. For example, if you try to set a password of "P@$$w0rd", it will get converted to "password" before being checked, and that will be rejected.

Once you have set a good password, and have enrolled for multi-factor authentication, you will no longer have to change your password every 180 days.
