Password Policy

Passwords must be strong. You must ensure that your password cannot be easily guessed. Follow our recommendations 

  • Your password must be at least 14 characters.
  • It must contain at least 3 of 4 following categories: 
    1. Capital letters (only A-Z)
    2. Small letters (only a-z)
    3. Numbers (0-9)
    4. Special characters (e.g. @ # $ % ^ & * - _ ! + = [ ] { } | \ : ' , . ? / ` ~ " ( ) ;)

Despite compliance with the above requirements, passwords might be rejected, as we check for known weak passwords (e.g. avoid using obvious combinations such as your name, city name, months, or years related to the time or place of the password change, or similar). Compliance demands in terms of strong passswords will continously be evaluated. 

Users who cannot remember their password can reset by using nem-id or contact ITS Support. Change of password for users who do remember their password can take place in a number of ways. 

 

  • Passwords must not be reused.
  • Passwords must be changed at least once a year.
