Sign in to DASHlink

If you already have a NASA/NDC account

NASA employees, support service contractors, and affiliates with NASA accounts may use their NDC accounts to register to DASHlink. This is the username/password you use to login to your NASA computers. Some centers do not have NDC accounts yet, in which case you may want to consider using OpenID (the user privileges are the same). An account profile that you can fill out will automatically be created when you login with your NDC credentials here, no additional approvals required.

Use Open ID (what's this?)

Non-NASA users can utilize OpenID to login to DASHlink. OpenID allows you to utilize an email account username/password that you already own (gmail, yahoo, aol) to login to DASHlink, rather than creating a new username/password combination for the site. If you don't have any of those accounts, you can create a verisign account instead. When you click your preferred provider below, you will be prompted to enter your credentials for that site and information about your research interests and connection to NASA (please be thorough, this helps hasten our approval process). DASHlink will then generate an email to that account. You must follow the link in the email to verify your identity (check your spam filters if you don't receive it, or use the Contact Us feature to let us know). Your application will then enter our approval process. Once approved (usually within 48 hours), you'll receive email verification letting you know.

Having trouble logging in?

Make sure that:

  • If you were a member of the old DASHlink, re-register using OpenID or your NDC credentials (your old username/password will NOT work).
  • No "NDC\" is included in front of your username
  • You use the same username/password that you use to login to NASA computers. It is NOT your Idmax or any other credentials
  • You use the same OpenID provider that you first registered with

If You're Coming From Old DASHlink

You will need to re-register. We apologize for the inconvenience of this, but we hope it will actually make things more efficient in the future. Now you can use any email address using Open ID, hopefully lessening the number of usernames and passwords you need to remember. All the content has been transferred, and as soon as you register, we’ll assign any of yours to you. More information about that is here:
