Terms and Conditions of Use
Your username, in this case the email address you registered, is unique throughout the eCESB systems. All users are asked to register and verify a username and password. All computer systems implement this for three (3) main reasons: • Authentication is the process of identifying an individual, usually based on a username and password. Authentication is based on the idea that each individual user will have unique information that sets him or her apart from other users. This security mechanism ensures that no unauthorized parties can access your eCESB information. • Authorization is the process of granting or denying a user access to eCESB information once the user has been authenticated through the username and password. The amount of information and services the user has access to depend on the defined access rules for your that user. • Accounting is the process of keeping track of a user's activity while accessing the eCESB information, including the amount of time spent in the system, the services accessed while there and the amount of data transferred during the session. Accounting data is used for trend analysis, capacity planning, auditing and resource allocation. As illustrated above, your authentication (username and password) grant you access eCESB information. Your password is your protection against information leakage and misuse of your account. It is important that you maintain a strong password. A strong password has the following characteristics: • Password Length. The eCESB system requires a minimum password length of 6 characters. Longer password length provides additional protection against brut force attacks. • Password Complexity. Use a combination of uppercase and lowercase alphanumeric characters and sysmbols. • Avoid Use of Common Names and Dictionary Dictionary Words as part of your password. Most brute force attacks make use of dictionary and common names to compromise a user account. Below are some tips on how to practice good password security: • Never store usernames and passwords on paper or in an unencrypted computer file. The eCESB system stores your password in an encrypted manner using one-way hash function. The system administrators cannot decrypt passwords. • Never disclose usernames and passwords to any other persons. • Do not use passwords that have been used in the past. Do not use the same password for any other sites or programs (email for instance, your social security access, tax offices online, banking accounts, etc). If one is cracked they might have access to them all. • Never provide credentials when requested through email. eCESB system will never ask you for your credentials on email. • Scan your USB for virus when inserting in your computer. Phishing bots are often hidden in the USB. • Regularly change your password. For assistance and additional information, please contact the systems administrator through email@example.com.
