Lincoln Laboratory staff can reset their Kerberos password with a two-step process:
- Get a MIT personal certificate using your Lincoln ID (instead of your Kerberos ID)
- Use the certificate to reset your Kerberos password
- Use DUO "push" to reset your Kerberos password
How can I renew my certificate as a Lincoln Laboratory employee? This can only be accessed from computers at Lincoln Labs.
If there are problems with resetting the password or a DUO relax, you can contact the Lincoln Laboratory Technology Group at 781-981-4357 or email@example.com, or you can contact IS&T's User Accounts office.
