Authentication and Authorization
Account Security and Respresentation
Each user is assigned their own username and password required to access the Carson-Newman network and resources. The use of this username and password combination authenticate you as an authorized user of the Carson-Newman network and systems. This account is to be kept confidential and not shared with anyone.
Usernames and passwords are not to be written down or recorded in any manner where it is not secure (e.g. posted on the monitor, on the desk, under the keyboard, etc.) Violation of this policy will result in the affected account(s) being suspended.
Your password will expire every six months by which time you will need to select a new password. You will receive e-mails beginning 21 days before password expiration and a notice at log in time beginning 14 days before password expiration (Mac computers will not receive the log in notice). You cannot use a previous password and they must be a minimum of 6 alphanumeric characters in length. Carson-Newman will NEVER e-mail, asking for your password!
