Iscte Account

SIIC assigns user accounts to all Iscte employees. The account is personal and non-transferable.

For instance, the employee Xisto Ximenes has the following credentials:

Email address:
Password: Password.2020

The iscte account password must comply with the following requirements:

  • Must be at least 10 characters long.
  • You should not reuse an old password.
  • It must not contain your username (excluding the suffix) or any of its used names, excluding particles that are less than three characters long.
  • It should not contain characters considered illegal (;, , ‘%, *, blank).
  • It must contain characters from at least three of the following categories:
    • Capitals not accented (‘A’ to ‘Z’).
    • Lowercase not accented (‘a’ to ‘z’).
    • Decimal digits (‘0’ to ‘9’).
    • Non-alphanumeric characters (!#&, etc.).

How do I recover my password?

  • Passwords must be confidential.
  • Do not store passwords on visible papers or locations.
  • Regularly change your password even on systems that don’t require you to do so.
  • Do not automatically record on systems (e.g. browsers).
  • Do not use the same passwords in an academic context and in a personal context.
  • To create a secure password think of an easy-to-remember phrase and then define a method to turn that phrase into a password.

For instance:

Phrase: how to set a secure password in 2020!

Method: first letter of each word, third word in letters, use only the last two digits of numbers and keep special characters.

Password: htSETaspi20! (Do not use this example).
