Resetting Kerberos Password for Lincoln Laboratory Employees

Lincoln Laboratory staff can reset their Kerberos password with a two-step process:

  1. Get a MIT personal certificate using your Lincoln ID (instead of your Kerberos ID)
  2. Use the certificate to reset your Kerberos password

1. Get a certificate using their Lincoln ID

The internal Lincoln page is "short/mitcert2". This can only be accessed from computers at Lincoln Labs.

2. Use the certificate to reset your Kerberos password

Once you have a certificate, you can reset it on the standard MIT password web page: http://ca.mit.edu/ca/cpw

Other options

If there are problems with resetting the password, you can contact the Lincoln Laboratory Technology Group at 781-981-4357 or help@ll.mit.edu, or you can contact IS&T's User Accounts office.

Due to the difficulty of verifying users' identities at Lincoln Lab, the staff at the Workforce Service Center, WSC, will be allowed to verify a user in person on our behalf. They will notify us that the user was properly verified, and we should record who did the verification in the ticket.

The list of people allowed at LL WSC to verify users is:

  • D. Mark Sprague
  • Colleen Campbell
  • Kristen Thompson
  • Patricia Shwab
