Training Question of the Week for January 14, 2008

Updated on November 15, 2015

Does PRPC provide a way to enforce password compliance requirements without additional software? I would like a developer's password to expire every 90 days, prevent repeated passwords, and be able to enforce what characters are allowed in a password.

Answer from Jeff Vande Wege
Version 5.3 introduced an optional Password Control feature, implemented as a RuleSet. You import a Password Control RuleSet from the 5.3 Resource Kit directory of the distribution kit (which includes documentation) and then configure password requirements.

Requirements include defining naming restrictions, length, expiration date, preventing reuse and first login reset. You can also build in your own custom requirements.

For more information on Password Control see the Password Control help topic.
