The caDSR II password rules follow NIH guidelines. These guidelines suggest each user create a passphrase, which is more secure. When changing or resetting your caDSR II user account, keep in mind the following password rules:

  • Specify at least 15 characters. There is no maximum. 
  • Specify a different password than your previous ten passwords.
  • Passwords are case-sensitive. That is, password is not the same as PASSWORD.
  • Passwords expire in 365 days. 

If you know your current password, you can change it, as described in Changing Your Password.

If you have forgotten your password, you can reset it, as described in Resetting Your Password.
