University credentials and authentication

Recipients

All persons registered in the registry.

Keep your credentials safe

The Politecnico often target of attacks aimed at stealing the credentials of its users. Your cooperation is vital in fending off such attacks:

  • Change your password regularly
  • Do not share it with third parties and never reveal it to any other website than those of the University
  • Do not follow links present in emails that require you to verify your credentials; the University will never send you such a request, therefore such emails are fraudulent
  • Notify us of any security problems by writing to
    sicurezza-ict-ASICT@polimi.it
  • If you believe you may have accidently revealed your credentials change your password and contact us immediately

Recovering your credentials

To recover your University credentials, please use the link on the Online Services access page.

If, during or after registration at the University you provided a personal email address to recover your password you may use this to complete the procedure completely online.

SPID (Public Digital Identity System) Identity

SPID is an access system that allows you to use all Public Administration Online Services as well as those of accredited private individuals with a single digital identity.
If you already have a level 2 digital SPID identity, you can use this to access the Politecnico’s Online Services: choose “Access with SPID” and enter the credentials provided by your administrator.

Two-factor authentication

To further protect your access to the Online Services and protect users from credentials theft, since 10/12/2018 the University has been experimenting with two-factor authentication (2FA) on a limited number of users. This option means that, in order to login to services, in addition to the password a one-time, system-generated temporary code (“second factor”) is entered.
