Script for Checking a Password

Script for Checking a Password

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

Syntax for 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 test

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

A password cannot have '?' or '!' at the beginning. 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
