Beginning this Saturday, March 4th 2017, UMKC students will be required to set their passwords using the new Secure Authentication Toolkit. If a student has not registered their security data in the Secure Authentication Toolkit before this weekend and needs to set a password, the toolkit will recognize the student has not registered and will automatically prompt the student to register their information so they can then set their password. In conjunction, all Pathway password reset links will be transitioned from the old PeopleSoft password reset tools to the new Secure Authentication Toolkit password reset tools. This is another step in the process UM campuses are adopting in order to establish a more secure verification process to better protect personal data and University systems.
Earlier this week, the UMKC IS password page went live, which features the new Secure Authentication Toolkit password reset tools as well as detailed information regarding which tool to use depending upon each user’s particular situation. The UMKC Call Center has been directing current students to register their information in Secure Authentication Toolkit since November and new students will now be able to register and set a password in one process.
