What is a Passphrase

passphrase is another word for a password however it encourages a sequence of words or other text rather then a single word to control access to a computer system, program or data. A passphrase is similar to a password in usage, but is generally longer for added security.  The passphrase at Royal Roads can also contain spaces, numbers and special characters.

What are the Passphrase requirements

 

  • Minimum 12 characters
  • any combination of letters, numbers, space, symbols and/or caps
  • Can only be changed once every 24 hours
  • Cannot be the same as a passphrase you've used the past 5 times you've changed
  • We recommend phrases like "I love Poutine!" or "RRUcomputerservicesisawsome"
  • Your account will be locked out after 10 unsuccessful attempts.  You must contact Computer Services to have the account unlocked.

Info

 You should create a new, strong passphrase for each site. Using the same passphrase on multiple places, especially that use the same username, can turn a stolen passphrase from an unnerving inconvenience to a full fledged nightmare.
