ACSS start screen

ACSS is an acronym for Allegiance Community Security System. It is the open source replacement for ASGS.

Implemented in the R7 release, ACSS strives to enhance the security in comparison to the old ASGS client.

If you are new to Allegiance, much of this information can be safely ignored. It's more about the differences from our old security system ASGS.

FAQ

Disambiguation

  • What is an ACSS login?
    • This is your account. ACSS assigns an a login hardware signatures, a password, messages, bans and so on...
  • What is an ACSS callsign?
    • A login can contain multiple callsigns. On registration you set your first callsign. If you have multiple callsigns assigned to your login, it doesn't matter which callsign you use to log on at ACSS client or web front end. They all have the same password.

Callsigns

  • How do I create a hider?
    • After you logged into the ACSS client, you may notice the Callsigns tab or the Manage Callsigns button, just click on it. At the bottom you will find a button Create Callsign. Just enter your preferred name and create it.
