Configuration of SwyxServer Registration on SwyxWare Administration Complex passwords
Complex passwords
If a complex password has been forced as a rule in server and/or user configuration, then you'll have to set up a complex password for every password change.
In SwyxON, the rule to force the use of complex passwords is preset and cannot be revoked by any administrator.
Complex passwords for SwyxServer must at least meet the following requirements:
* The passwords consists at least of eight characters.
* The password consists of any characters meeting at least the four following character categories:
- upper-case letters such as: [A-Z]
- lower-case letters such as: [a-z]
- Numbers [0-9]
- Non-alphanumeric characters (special characters) such as: - periods, commas, brackets, blanks, hash tags (#), question marks (?), percent signs (%), ampersands (&).
Alphabetic characters (such as: ß, ü, ä, è, ô) and non-Latin characters (such as: φ, π, β) are no special characters and are regarded as letters.
The log-in dialog shows the password status bar while setting a new password, which indicates whether it meets requirements and will be accepted.
The bar consists of five sections. Each section verifies, if the following password requirements have been met:
* At least eight characters
* At least one upper-case letter
* At least one lower-case letter
* At least one digit
* At least one special character
The bar gets longer, the more password requirements have been met.
The color of the bar changes accordingly. It also indicates, if the password is being accepted by the system.
