Create a Linux account

To access the Centos Linux computer system you will need to initialise your account.

You only need to do this once.  This is the same as / instead of an initial double-login to the Centos Linux computer system when on campus. 

Please note that you do NOT need to create an account here if you are using the Cyber Security & Digital Forenics labs as you will be using Ubuntu Linux not Centos Linux - see your tutor for those login credentials as they are specific to those labs only.
