Password Policies

The password policy engine provides a mechanism for enforcing rules for user passwords.

Installation

If you install a module that depends on users/groups, this feature will automatically be installed as well.

Settings

Minimum Password Length

Specify the minimum allowable password length.

Minimum Password Age

The age before which the user cannot change the password.

Maximum Password Age

The age at which a password change is forced.

History Size

The number of different passwords you must have before you can repeat one.

Account Lockout

If enabled, the account will be locked for 600s after 5 failed login attempts

<note tip>These settings are held in ldap. If you wanted to change, for example, the lockout duration you would have to use a tool like phpLDAPAdmin and edit the object:

dn: cn=default,ou=PasswordPolicies,ou=Accounts,dc=system,dc=lan
