CTDATA User Account Password Policies

The other day, Mary Kuykendall asked what the restrictions are on changing user passwords on the servers operated by ctdata.com. We decided to publish the password restrictions on email accounts under the ctdata.com and gcf-inc.com domains.

Since authentication for the AAHA Officiating Program Member Database comes from the same source, these restrictions also apply to that application.

Read on for more details....

When changing your email password on ctdata.com or gcf-inc.com, or changing your access password on aaharefs.org, the following restrictions apply:

  1. Your password must be at least six characters in length.
  2. Your password must not be the same as any of your last 6 passwords.
  3. Your password expires 90 calendar days after it has been issued, unless you change it. Each time you change it, it will remain good for 90 days from that date.

When attempting to log in to these resources:

  1. Your account will be locked out after 10 failed login attempts within a single 10 minute period.
  2. Your account will remain locked out for 60 minutes, once it has been locked out.

Please note that nothing on this page is applicable to the Slashcode-based Web Applications on ctdata.com and rcnj.org.

Please contact your system administrator with any questions about these policies.
