Secure Logins using SSH/SSL


The University of Hawaii Information Technology Services (ITS) has implemented Secure Shell (SSH) and Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) logins to the University's servers. Using these protocols will encrypt information being passed on the network. Secure logins require passwords to be encrypted when connecting to the following servers:

  • (which include your personal web pages at www2)
  • (sFTP access only)

Encrypted passwords make it more difficult for anyone to steal the password which lowers the possibility of Identity Theft.
