Policy settings

Define the following settings for a password policy on the Password tab.

Table 17: Policy settings

Property

Meaning

Initial password

Initial password for newly created user accounts. The initial password is used if a password is not entered when you create a user account or if a random password is not generated.

Password confirmation

Reconfirm password.

Minimum Length

Minimum length of the password. Specify the number of characters a password must have.

Max. length

Maximum length of the password. Specify the number of characters a password can have. The maximum permitted value is 256.

Max. errors

Maximum number of errors. Set the number of invalid passwords attempts. Only taken into account when logging in to One Identity Manager.

This data is only taken into account if the One Identity Manager login was through a system user or employee based authentication module. If a user has reached the number of maximum failed logins, the employee or system user can no longer log in to One Identity Manager.

You can use the Password Reset Portal to reset the passwords of employees and system users who have been blocked. For more detailed information, see the One Identity Manager Web Portal User Guide.

Validity period

Maximum age of the password. Enter the length of time a password can be used before it expires.

Password history

Enter the number of passwords to be saved. If, for example, a value of 5 is entered, the user's last five passwords are stored.

Minimum password strength

Specifies how secure the password must be. The higher the password strength, the more secure it is. The value 0 means that the password strength is not tested. The values 1, 2, 3 and 4 specify the required complexity of the password. The value 1 represents the lowest requirements in terms of password strength. The value 4 requires the highest level of complexity.

Name properties denied

Specifies whether name properties are permitted in the password. If this option is set, name properties are not permitted in passwords. The values of these columns are taken into account if the Contains name properties for password check option is set. In the Designer, adjust this option in the column definition. For more detailed information, see the One Identity Manager Configuration Guide.

Character classes for passwords

Use the Character classes tab to specify which characters are permitted for a password.

Custom scripts for password requirements

You can implement custom scripts for testing and generating passwords if the password requirements cannot be mapped with the existing settings options. Scripts are applied in addition to the other settings.

Detailed information about this topic

Checking passwords with a script

You can implement a script if additional policies need to be used for checking a password that cannot be mapped with the available settings.

Syntax of check scripts

Public Sub CCC_CustomPwdValidate( policy As VI.DB.Passwords.PasswordPolicy, spwd As System.Security.SecureString)

With parameters:

policy = password policy object

spwd = password to check

TIP: To use a base object, take the Entity property of the PasswordPolicy class.
Example of a script that checks a password

A password cannot start with ? or ! . The password cannot start with three identical characters. The script checks a given password for validity.

Public Sub CCC_PwdValidate( policy As VI.DB.Passwords.PasswordPolicy, spwd As System.Security.SecureString)

Dim pwd = spwd.ToInsecureArray()

If pwd.Length>0

If pwd(0)="?" Or pwd(0)="!"

Throw New Exception(#LD("Password can't start with '?' or '!'")#)

End If

End If

If pwd.Length>2

If pwd(0) = pwd(1) AndAlso pwd(1) = pwd(2)

Throw New Exception(#LD("Invalid character sequence in password")#)

End If

End If

End Sub

To use a custom script for checking a password

  1. In the Designer, create your script in the Script Library category.
  2. Edit the password policy.
    1. In the Manager, select the LDAP | Basic configuration data | Password policies category.

    2. In the result list, select the password policy.
    3. Select the Change master data task.
    4. On the Scripts tab, enter the name of the script to be used to check a password in the Check script field.
    5. Save the changes.
