The Solution Provider is required to change system default and system administration passwords on implementation, and regularly thereafter following standard security best practices.


III. General statements about personal information, security and privacy

Regardless of the method of authentication, applications may have need for additional information about the user for authorization decisions and customization of the user experience. This information is housed in PeopleSoft, with subsets mirrored in our LDAP Registry database and the Active Directory domain. This information is considered private and access to it must be specifically requested and granted to the application.  Please see the link to our Approved InCommon Attribute Release Policy
