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 http://uits.iu.edu/page/bbtp.  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 (https://passphrase.iu.edu). 

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

HOW WILL THIS BE ENFORCED?
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.

Don't forget that September 3 is Labor Day!  The Pullman Strike -- a conflict between railway companies and the American Railway Union -- was the main reason Labor Day became a federal holiday.  After the Pullman Strike came to a violent end, Presdient Grover Cleveland, hoping to ease tension, introduced legislation that was quickly passed through congress (a mere six days!) and established that Labor Day become a national holiday. 

Nowadays, Labor Day is seen not only as a celebration of America's workforce, but also a way to bid farewell to the last days of summer with cookouts and other outdoor activities.  Enjoy the day!
