Password Information

This page is to provide information on passwords including links to further information on passwords and account security. The collection of blog entries on password security can be found here.

Passwords (and account security) are important because of the damage that can be caused when account credentials are compromised – both to the person to whom the account has been issued, and to the University as a whole.

As such we suggest choosing a password that is “long and strong” with a more detailed suggest of choosing three or four unrelated words (one at least should be uncommon) separated by a favourite symbol.
