CCR users must enable two-factor authentication on their accounts prior to Tuesday, July 27, 2021.  Details about this policy change and instructions for updating your account can be found here.

Users that use SSH (including SCP/SFTP) to connect to CCR servers must update to SSH keys.  Passwords over SSH will no longer be accepted after 7/27/21.  This is separate from two-factor authentication but both policies are taking effect during the July maintenance downtime.  Please contact CCR Help with any questions.
