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 (you need to do that during the activation process of your account). 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.

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 SeKA system, however, is different from the Neptun, so you need to set a password for yourself before you can use the SeKA system. You can do this as part of the activation process of your SeKA account. This is described in detail in this document.

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.

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. However, the SeKA account needs to be activated before using it the first time. The activation process is described here in detail.

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 (itc.semmelweis.hu, click on the SeKA icon!), or the SeKA password manager (seka.semmelweis.hu/pwm/). 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 (seka.semmelweis.hu/pwm/). 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 (seka.semmelweis.hu/pwm/). 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 change my e-mail address in the SeKA system?

Visit the seka.semmelweis.hu page and click on the “Login/bejelentkezés” text on the left side of the page! After logging in successfully, click on the “Change email address” button on the left side, then follow the instructions. The program sends an email to the address you specify, but the change will take place only of you click on the link sent in the email message. This way you can set only an email address that is valid and you have acess to.

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 (seka.semmelweis.hu/pwm/) then click on the  “Setup password responses” button.
