i. Passwords contain at least eight non-blank characters.
ii. Passwords contain a combination of letters, numbers, and at least one special character within the first seven positions.
iii. Passwords contain a nonnumeric in the first and last position.
iv. Passwords do not contain the user ID
I have a little script that I am using now to autogenerate passwords. Can it me modified to meet these requirements. See code.
How can I enforce these requirements when people change their password.
Don't worry about it. With requirements like those it won't matter. Your requirements will prevent anyone from actually remembering their password and even it they write it down, it will be too hard to type.
Hi Dan, I agree. Have you ever done Federal Contract work?
