Password policy

A password policy can be used to make sure that a password meets a certain amount of minimum requirements such as password length, numeric, alphanumeric symbols, …

There are a few options that can be used:

  • Change password after first login
  • Change password on portal
  • Minimum password length
  • Password expires after x days: This option makes it possible to force a user/subscriber to change his password
  • Block account after x login attempts
  • Password history: don't allow reuse of the same password, enforce a different password choice.
  • Password complexity (these options can be combined)
    • Numeric
    • Alphanumeric
    • Use special characters
