Our security policy requires the following criteria are met for user account passwords.

The password rules require the following:

  • Not contain significant portions of the user’s account name or full name. (This means no more than 2 characters)
  • Be at least eight (8) characters in length
  • Contain characters from three of the following four following categories:
    • English uppercase characters (A through Z)
    • English lowercase characters (a through z)
    • Base 10 digits (0 through 9)
    • Non-alphabetic characters (for example, !, $, #, %)

Also, you cannot re-use any of the last 4 passwords you created, nor will you be able to change the new password for the next 8 days.
