You can change the password that you use for RSA NetWitness Platform authentication at any time in your user preferences. Your administrator defines the appropriate password strength requirements for your NetWitness Platform password, such as minimum password length and minimum number of uppercase, lowercase, decimal, non-Latin alphabetic, and special characters. These requirements are then displayed when changing your password.

Note: This procedure applies to internal accounts only. It does not apply to Active Directory or PAM accounts.

To change your password:

  1. Do one of the following:
    • For most views, such as Monitor, Configure, Admin, or Investigate, select Profile icon > Profile.
    • In the Respond and some Investigate views (Event Analysis, Hosts, Files, and Users), select Profile icon and in the User Preferences dialog click Change my password.

    The Preferences dialog is displayed.
    Preferences dialog

  2. In the Change My Password section, enter the password that you used to authenticate to NetWitness Platform in the Old Password field.

  3. In the New Password field, enter the password that you want to use for the next login.

  4. In the Confirm Password field, retype the new password.
  5. Click Reset Password.
    You will be logged out of NetWitness Platform for the changes to take effect. The new password becomes effective the next time you log in to NetWitness Platform.
