CalNet ID Information for EECS
  November 2014

What is a CalNet ID?
  A CalNet ID is an ID number or user name with a password.    It is used to login to some WEB sites at UC Berkeley.
A CalNet ID for staff initially consists of:

Field Also called Example Comment
employee ID "login", "principal", "user name" 012345678 9 digits, starts with "01"
Password "passphrase" The quick brown fox. at least 9 characters; at least 3 character "classes"
( https://calnet.berkeley.edu/passphrase-requirements.html)

How Do I Get One?
 
1.   Employees need a UCB employee ID number.
2.   Obtain a temporary CalNet passphrase (a "token") from a CalNet deputy from your department.
3. Go to https://net-auth.berkeley.edu/cgi-bin/krbreg to set a new "passphrase" of your choice.
4. Go to https://net-auth.berkeley.edu/ if you wish to change your Calnet passphrase after that.
5. You may test your new CalNet ID at https://auth.berkeley.edu/cas/login?renew=true&service=https://auth.berkeley.edu/ and https://inst.eecs.berkeley.edu//~kevinm/calnet/test/.
6. If a site does not accept your CalNetID, please contact the adminstrators of that site   (not the people listed above)   to report the problem.
