IT Security Announcement for New Password Rules
On November 2nd 2018, the District is implementing changes to the Single Sign-On (SSO) system that will:
- Make it easier for users to remember their passwords.
- Reduce the need to seek assistance to access District accounts.
- Improve the District's resiliency to information security breaches.
All employees and non-employees (excluding students) will now be required to create stronger passwords. Passwords must receive a strength rating of at least “Fair” before being accepted. Users are encouraged to use the password strength meter at https://mylogin.lausd.net to test passwords for compliance with District policy.
The following table lists the colors associated with various strength levels.
A passphrase is recommended when selecting a strong password. Passphrases can be created by picking a phrase and replacing some of the characters with other characters and capitalizations. For example, the phrase “Are you talking to me?!” can become “RUTALk1ng2me!!”.
