We have good news for everyone who struggles to remember a plethora of passwords. Soon there will be one less when we simplify AIS/Tera Term’s login procedure.
This new development means that you will soon be able to log into sun022, the system which, among others, hosts Tera Term, with your standard network username and password.
Phase one of the process is a “soft roll-out”, where SSO (Same Sign On) will be implemented. During this period, you will still be able to log in with your network username or, until it expires, with your existing AIS username. When your AIS password expires, the IT Service desk will not be able to reset it and you will have to start using your network username and password.
The primary AIS usernames of current AIS users (with more than one AIS username) will be connected to their network username.
After SSO is implemented, newly created AIS users’ usernames will be set to their SU number. This also implies that AIS usernames, roles, and functions will not be reused.
Take note that passwords for these functions should not be shared among staff and that, in doing so, the Electronic Communications Policy is violated. The new SSO approach also means that one password will give also give you access to your private Human Resources information. In other words, if you share your password, you also share your personal information.
