Passwords must contain:
If you have forgotten your CS password and are unable to login please stop by CS room 101 and have your password reset. If that is not possible send email to firstname.lastname@example.org from another account and we will work with you to get the password reset.
It's a good idea to change your password periodically. To change your LDAP or CIFS passwords, go to CS Password Change page in the CS Guide. You will need to login to the CS Guide to access the CS Password Change page which you can do by clicking the "Log in using CAS" button found on this page. If you are logged into the CS Guide you should see the change password box on this page. You will be prompted for your old LDAP password, then twice for your new password.
Certain file names (files beginning with a ".") will not appear on your screen when you type the 'ls' command. However, you can see these file names by typing the command 'ls -a'. Some of these files serve special purposes such as setting up your computing environment when you login. The actual files used depend on your default shell. Your default shell was specified when your account was created. Common choices for the shell are csh or bash.
The CS department has a few different authentication mechanisms that are used to access different resources.
The short answer: In many cases, no.
Because our infrastructure does not manage resources at a fine grain, anyone with a CS account can login to the cycle servers, access the file system (including world-readable files), create a web page, send email through our systems, request a database, manage a mailing list, and more.
The University NetID (also called the OIT NetID) is the name or user-id that identifies a person to a computer system or electronic service at Princeton. In addition, when one's OIT account is activated, one can send and receive email using the address, email@example.com. For more information, see the OIT KnowledgeBase: Getting Started: What is my netID? Do I have a Princeton email address?
