You can change the password that you use for NetWitness Suite authentication at any time in your user preferences. Your Administrator defines the appropriate password strength requirements for your NetWitness Suite 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: When a Core service uses a trusted connection, you do not enter a password so no update is required for Core service accounts.

To change your password:

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

    The Preferences dialog is displayed.

  2. In the Change My Password section, enter the password that you used to authenticate to NetWitness Suite 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 Suite for the changes to take effect. The new password becomes effective the next time you log in to NetWitness Suite.
