Re: a question about having College ID number as part of directory information

The concern that was associated with the query was that people use the
physical ID to store "College Bucks" for dinning use and that somehow that
could be compromised. It is also the username credial for many college
system but so it your name. You can't access or change information with
just your College ID number.

 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?

HI All,



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.



Thanks,



Roy Galang
