Password Rules - Complexity

Tags: Password Rules

Problem Definition

You have an installation of PortalGuard and would like to define rules for end user password complexity


Solution

Enable Password Rule Grouping - When enabled, rules can be added to a group where any subset of matched rules satisfies the group as a whole. This can allow you to define 'OR' rules like: NOTE: If a rule is not included in the group, it must ALWAYS be satisfied.

Include Rule In Group - When enabled, this rule is included in the group and may not always need to be satisfied. If a rule is not included in the group, it must ALWAYS be satisfied.

Minimum Length - The minimum number of total characters required for new passwords. Set to 0 to disable this check.

Maximum Length - The maximum number of total characters allowed for new passwords. Set to 0 to disable this check.

Minimum Lowercase Characters - The minimum number of lowercase characters required for new passwords. Set to 0 to disable this check.

Minimum Uppercase Characters - The minimum number of uppercase characters required for new passwords. Set to 0 to disable this check.

Minimum Numeric Characters - The minimum number of numeric characters required for new passwords. Set to 0 to disable this check.

Minimum Non-Alphanumeric Characters - The minimum number non-alphanumeric characters (e.g. 'symbols') required for new passwords. Set to 0 to disable this check.

Enforce Active Directory Complexity - When enabled, checks new passwords according to Microsoft Active Directory’s Password must meet complexity requirements setting.
