HfMDK account for administrative staff

The HfMDK account is your central user ID at the HfMDK Frankfurt. The HfMDK account consists of a login name and a domain. This combination is generated automatically and cannot be changed. The authorization to use the account is valid for the duration of the membership and expires automatically upon its termination. An extension beyond this period is not possible.


For the use of services outside the administration network (e.g. Wifi) you need your complete user name. This is formed from your administration login and the domain verw.hfmdk-frankfurt.de. For example, if your administration login is abcd56, then your complete user name is abcd56@verw.hfmdk-frankfurt.de

Keyword Guidelines

To ensure basic security of the passwords used, so-called password guidelines exist. These define minimum requirements for the structure, complexity and length of the permitted passwords:

  • The length is at least 8 characters
  • The password contains characters from at least 3 categories:
    • Lowercase letters (a-z incl. umlauts, diacritics, Greek and Cyrillic characters)
    • Capital letters (A-Z incl. umlauts, diacritics, Greek and Cyrillic characters)
    • Numbers (0-9)
  • Special characters (~!@#$%^&*_-+=`|\(){}[]:;"<>,'.?/)
  • The username and/or realname must not be included in the password

Tips on choosing and using passwords can be found at the BSI in its section "BSI for Citizens", among others.
