Login for Security Datasets Project

I have currently tried to login using my standard splunk login information, unable to login. I have tried to log in to splunk.com first and then go the page using the link provided in the email in 2 different browsers. Does anyone know how to log in to the Security Datasets Project?

You have two options:
1: Just open the link from your email again and you should be in again. Just bookmark that url.
2: Take a closer look at the link from your email to see what authentication it uses. When I look at mine, it is pretty obvious (and not even a personally specific user/pass). Won't post it here as Splunk probably prefers people to go through the registration, rather than just logon with credentials found here.

Resolution found by discussion in comments:

If you are on a new browser/device, the original link you were emailed does not work. Re-registering on the new browser for a new link does work and will take you right in as intended.

Note: the URL in the email only auto-logs in from the browser I used to sign up for it. If I paste the URL into another browser, I get a Splunk logon page. Looks I'm dependent on a cookie, which doesn't bode well.

Interesting. My link from march 2018 still worked even though that was registered on a previous laptop and even on my current in works in whichever browser I try it in. Is there a new security data set registration method / environment or so?

It looks like you are correct, I had to re-register, since I had registered initially on another machine, and was able to get in.

When you signed up, did you get a reply email titled "Thank you for your interest in the Splunk Security Datasets Project"? I signed up here, https://live.splunk.com/splunk-security-dataset-project, then got an email with a link that took me straight in.

Hmm, but if I log off, I can't log back on. @rkovar_splunk, can you point us in the right direction?
