Glossary: Password

Password

A password is 6-8 alphanumeric characters that authorize you to access the Instructional Support Information System (ISIS), Scholar's Mail, and the Internet. Passwords are usually authenticated by an operating system. The system can verify the authenticity of the password, not the user. Your password should be frequently changed to prevent unauthorized use by hackers.
