You have confirmed the link but the password is still not working.
Some email clients break the very long link produced by the CUCC system into two lines and only the first line is hyperlinked. You need to copy the whole link (e.g. into Microsoft Word), connect the two lines into one line and paste the complete address into a web browser.

More detailed explanation

Why do I need the login and password for CUNI CAS?
The Charles University Computer Centre (CUCC) has a complex authentication policy, which includes a CAS. More info at: CUCC pages. One of the advantages should be that in the future you can use this login and password for all applications offered by Charles University.
