As we move into Fall semester, some of the authentication systems managed by CIS will be configured to require password resets every 365 days.
This is a step in improving the overall security of HMC systems and bringing us into compliance with our password policy.
To reset your passwords please visit the HMC password and account management portal at:
(Nov 2012 edit: we have replaced this link with
Using this portal, you will set up security questions and set the password for all of the following systems in one go:
Claremont WPA wireless (eg laptops, phones and other devices that connect to Claremont WPA wireless)
Alice and Charlie file servers
Cognos 10 reports
Google Apps for Education
If you have not reset your passwords in over 365 days, you should do so. We will be working with each department to ensure a smooth transition to this new system. You can change your password any time you like using the password and account management portal. Once we have worked directly with each department, we will turn on the feature that requires a password change every 365 days.
Thank you for your understanding and your efforts to increase the security of our systems.
