Frequently asked questions (FAQ)

Who is entitled to have a SeKA account?

All students, members of the faculty and other employees of Semmelweis University can have a SeKA account. They can use their account as long as they are still students or employees of the university. A further requirement is that the users accept the "User Agreement". People who are not officially employees but regularly teach students just like faculty members can also get a SeKA account.

What User Agreement must be accepted in order to use the SeKA service?

You are allowed to use the SeKA service only if you accept the terms of the User Agreement. Here is a copy of it:

SeKA accounts can be used to login to several computer services of Semmelweis University (and of other institutions in the EduID federation). You are free to use your SeKA account as long as you are a member (student, teacher or other employee) of the Semmelweis University.
Important: You MUST NOT SHARE your SeKA account with anyone else. Breaching the terms of this user agreement results in the termination of the user's account.
The SeKA service stores only data that is necessary for user authentication and authorization. Any other personal data is stored only if provided by the user herself/himself. The Privacy Policy of the Centre for Educational Development, Methodology and Organisation, which operates the SeKA ID, is available at the following link (in Hungarian).

What is my login name and password in the SeKA system?

For students the SeKA login name is the same as your 6 character ID code in the Neptun system. You can type it in using either lowercase or uppercase letters, it doesn't matter. The default password for students is the date of birth in the format: YYYY.MM.DD. (Don’t miss the dots after year, month and day!) The following guide will help you with logging in the first time.

For employees of the university, the SeKA login name is the same as the login name for the central email system. The activation process during which you can set a password for yourself is the same for both students and employees. The activation process is described in detail in this document. For lecturers and other employees of the university, the login name and password in the SeKA system depends on the start of employment.

How can I request a SeKA account?

Students do not need to request a SeKA account. The SeKA account gets automatically created in a few days after getting registered in the Neptun system.

Employees typically do not need to apply for a SeKA account either, because their account gets created based on the data found in the SAP system.

How can I check my SeKA password?

The easiest way is to attempt to log in to a service that uses SeKA authentication, like the e-learning system (, click on the SeKA icon!), or the SeKA password manager ( If the login is successful, the password is correct.

How can I change my SeKA password?

If you know your SeKA password, log in to the SeKA password manager ( Here you can use the “Change password” button. After changing your password you need to use the new one in all of the services that use the SeKA authentication system (that means you need to change the password in all of your devices that you set up for eduroam use, too!)

If you cannot remember your password, try using the  “Forgotten password” option of the SeKA password manager ( If you can answer the security questions you chose at the time of activating your SeKA account, you will be able to set a new password for yourself. If you cannot remember the answers to these questions, turn to the Helpdesk service.

How can I setup questions/responses in order to use the "Forgotten password" option in the SeKA system?

Using the “Forgotten password” option you can set a new SeKA password for yourself in case you forgot it, but you need to identify yourself by answering a couple of questions correctly. You can choose these questions and set answers to them at the time of activating your SeKA account. You can change these questions/answers, any time later as well. In order to do that, log in to the SeKA password manager ( then click on the  “Setup password responses” button.
