Once the quality parameters have been set, any future passwords are automatically checked against these parameters to determine the password’s level of acceptability.
If the eToken was initialized in early RTE versions, no password policy is stored on the token.
The password quality parameters are:
Minimum password length: default is 6 characters
Maximum usage period: in days; default is 0 = none
Minimum usage period: default is 0 days
Password expiry warning period: defines the number of days before the password expires that a warning message is shown; default is 0 = none
Password history size: defines how many old passwords should not be repeated (default is 10)
Password must meet complexity requirements: defines whether mixed characters are required in the eToken password; default = yes
In addition to the above password quality parameters that may also be set per token, two global parameters are set:
Configurable after initialization: defines whether the password quality parameters may be changed after initialization; default = yes
Configurable by Administrator (uncheck for user): defines whether the password quality parameters may be changed after initialization by the administrator, and not by the user only; default = yes
Note: If the Configurable after initialization parameter is unchecked, the Configurable by Administrator (uncheck for user) parameter is deactivated.
