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.
The CS department has a few different authentication mechanisms that are used to access different resources.
