Does the ID number allow you to do anything? For example, can I call the help desk and get my password reset by using
the ID number?

Subject: [SECURITY] a question about having College ID number as part of directory information
This may have been addressed before but I am being asked if providing a college ID number on our LDAP and other
directory services is a security risk.
I'm feeling that it isn't but I'm press to put a statement behind it that will put people at ease.
