Password policy for UAS users

This Password Policy is for UAS users on the Administrative Computing Network (ACN).

Policy statements

  1. All University user accounts which access information of value1 must be protected with a strong password.

  2. No University account password shall be shared, borrowed or re-used in other sites or systems, except as part of the University Single Sign-On Service (SSO).

What this means in practice

Your Raven password protects your accounts and access to systems and data and is used to grant you the appropriate access privileges to many University systems and storage.

It's therefore very powerful: if someone manages to get your password and compromises your Raven account, they'll have access to everything you have access to. It is essential to keep it secret and keep it safe.

Please read and follow our guides on choosing a strong password and password security.


1 Information of value is information at Level 2 or above on the Information Security Classification Table should it be compromised.
