Passphrase Expiration Notice
IU will phase in expirations for any passphrase that is more than two years old, beginning on Monday, September 10.  Detailed information on this process can be found in the Knowledge Base (KB) at  This process will apply to all students, faculty, and staff at IU's eight campuses.  Users will begin getting warnings, months in advance of the expiration date.  Users who don't change their passphrases by this date will immediately lose access to CAS-supported resources such as Oncourse, OneStart, ePTO, OTP authentication and PeopleSoft.  Affected users will regain access after completing the passphrase reset, using the Self-Service Passphrase Reset tool ( 

Old passwords and passphrases can jeopardize the security of personal and university data.  Passphrase expirations help protect this data against hacking and misuse.

Passphrase expiration will only be enforced via CAS, IU's Central Authentication System.  Network IDs will not be locked or disable. This means you will still be able to log in to non-CAS services such as workstations, email, and VPN.

The new school year is rapidly approaching, and IU Libraries is excited to open its doors to all the new students.  In order to make IU Libraries even more welcoming, OneSearch@IU is now available to new students (who have not yet registered and received an email address) and guests!  OneSearch simultaneously searches IUCAT, databases with scholarly articles, popular publications, and news sites to efficiently provide a wide scope of results.  Guests, prospective students, and new students can access OneSearch here. While some of the articles from the many databases may be available to guests off-campus, some articles may require them to be on-campus with a Library Guest Account.  All the more reason to encourage guests to visit the Libraries in person!  For more information, check out the original announcement here.
