Password-change criteria

Ana Paula Nova -

For Apollo and Galileo users:

Once the password to be used is the very same you use for your GDS Focalpoint access, rules are according to the GDS.

  • New passwords must be between 7 and 10 characters in length
  • Passwords must contain at least one alpha AND one numeric character
  • Days of the week and month names cannot be used
  • You cannot use your name (first or last as shown in STD profile), sign-on ID forwards or backwards (with or without a check digit)
  • Three consecutive similar characters are not allowed. (Example: AAA or 222 or 123 as per restricted word list below) 
  • The user's previous 5 (five) passwords are stored and may not be re-used for a new change
  • Password changes are limited to once per system day 
  • At least three characters must change in the new password for the system to accept it
  • The first three characters of the new password must be different from the old one
  • Your keyword cannot be the same as your password
  • The following restricted 'words' cannot be used:
    0000 111 222 333 444 555 666 777 888 999
    123 234 345 456 567 678 789 890 98 987
    876 765 654 543 432 321

    FLIGHT GAME FORGET GALILEO IBM MOTHER NET PASS 
    QWER RETIRED SABRE SECRET SKYNET SPRING SUMMER SWINDON 
    TEST TRAVEL UNITED WEBLIST WINTER WORLDSPAN
  • You cannot use prohibited words within a password - e.g. ‘PASSWORD’ wouldn't work because it contains 'PASS' or, if your name in your sign-on profile is Lisa, using 'MONALISA'  would not be allowed as a password.

 

For Worldspan users:

Password to be used is the one from your BSI string and not the one for the Worldspan Go! Res., rules are also according to the GDS.

  • Must be 7-10 alphanumerics
  • Must contain both alpha and numeric characters
  • May be changed only once a day
  • May not be changed when emulating another SID
  • May not be the agent sine or other common words
  • Must change at least three characters
  • May not be one of your last five passwords
