Why your passphrase may not fit in the CAS login box

When you try to log into an Indiana University system using the Central Authentication System (CAS), the password field hides what you're typing with either dots or asterisks, depending on your browser. You may notice that beyond a certain point, the browsers appear to stop accepting what you're typing.

Browsers such as Firefox, Internet Explorer, Chrome, and Safari can accept input up to the 127-character limit that CAS can handle. The browsers simply stop animating the asterisks or dots after a certain point. Although they continue to accept what you're typing as a passphrase, they stop giving visual indication of this.

On January 12, 2016, Microsoft ended support for Internet Explorer versions prior to version 11. UITS strongly recommends that you upgrade to a new operating system if your current system does not support Internet Explorer 11.
