Password policies for Unix user accounts

One Identity Manager provides you with support for creating complex password policies, for example, for system user passwords, the employees' central password as well as passwords for individual target systems. Password polices apply not only when the user enters a password but also when random passwords are generated.

Predefined password policies are supplied with the default installation that you can user or customize if required. You can also define your own password policies.

Detailed information about this topic

Predefined password policies

You can customize predefined password policies to meet your own requirements, if necessary.

Password for logging in to One Identity Manager

The One Identity Manager password policy is applied for logging in to One Identity Manager. This password policy defined the settings for the system user passwords (DialogUser.Password and Person.DialogUserPassword) as well as the access code for a one off log in on the Web Portal (Person.Passcode).

NOTE: The One Identity Manager password policy is marked as the default policy. This password policy is applied if no other password policy can be found for employees, user accounts or system users.

For detailed information about password policies for employees, see the One Identity Manager Identity Management Base Module Administration Guide.

Password policy for forming employees' central passwords

An employee's central password is formed from the target system specific user accounts by respective configuration. The Employee central password policy password policy defines the settings for the (Person.CentralPassword) central password. Members of the Identity Management | Employees | Administrators application role can adjust this password policy.

IMPORTANT: Ensure that the Employee central password policy password policy does not violate the system-specific requirements for passwords.

For detailed information about password policies for employees, see the One Identity Manager Identity Management Base Module Administration Guide.

Password policies for user accounts

Predefined password policies are provided, which you can apply to the user account password columns of the user accounts.

IMPORTANT: If you do not use password policies that are specific to the target system, the One Identity Manager password policy standard policy applies. in this case, ensure that the default policy does not violate the target systems requirements.

NOTE: When you update One Identity Manager version 7.x to One Identity Manager version 8.1, the configuration parameter settings for forming passwords are passed on to the target system specific password policies.

The UnixPassword policy password policy is predefined for Unix-based target systems. You can apply this password policy to Unix user accounts (UNXUser.Password) of a Unix host.

If the hosts' password requirements differ, it is recommended that you set up your own password policies for each host.

Furthermore, you can apply password policies based on the account definition of the user accounts or based on the manage level of the user accounts.

Using a password policy

The UnixPassword policy password policy is predefined for Unix-based target systems. You can apply this password policy to Unix user accounts (UNXUser.Password) of a Unix host.

If the hosts' password requirements differ, it is recommended that you set up your own password policies for each host.

Furthermore, you can apply password policies based on the account definition of the user accounts or based on the manage level of the user accounts.

The password policy that is to be used for a user account is determined in the following sequence:

  1. Password policy of the account definition of the user account

  2. Password policy of the manage level of the user account

  3. Password policy for the host of the user account

  4. Password policy One Identity Manager password policy (default policy)

IMPORTANT: If you do not use password policies that are specific to the target system, the One Identity Manager password policy standard policy applies. in this case, ensure that the default policy does not violate the target systems requirements.
