Security :: Passwords and Digital Identities

HSU has implemented an overarching access management system for on-campus computer systems. Every student, staff, and faculty member is provided with a unique HSU User Name when they officially enter the university population, and accounts and permissions are automatically created based on their role at the university.

Security :: Secure Authentication - Under the Hood

There are two discrete parts to the process that enables a user to access different network services - authentication and authorization.

Authentication

Authentication is the process of determining that users are who they say they are. One of the more popular and secure systems of authentication is Kerberos.

Security :: Single Sign-on Security

Your HSU User Name and Password together provide an efficient, secure way to access computer-based resources on campus. Using this unique combination of identifiers enables students, staff, and faculty to log in to any campus system using the same credentials without lowering the level of security applied to the information stored on those systems.
