Change to SFT passwords

The Secure File Transfer service (SFT) is changing its security requirements on May 16.

New passwords will be required to:
  • Be at least 8 characters long
  • Have at least 2 alpha characters
  • Have at least 2 numeric characters
  • Have at least 2 special characters (e.g. # @ $ *)

Order does not matter. Some examples are:
  •  MONKEY01##
  • 22@@CATS
  • B!ZL!C3N5E

The changes bring the password security in line with requirements of the Office of the Chief Information OfficerMost BLS partners will stop using SFT in June with the change to the new ATLAS system for reports and files.
