Enable Password and PIN Code Time Restrictions
To help prevent unauthorized access, you can ensure that users change their passwords and PIN codes regularly.
You can ensure that users do not reuse passwords. IDOL server can store a list of used passwords, and it prevents users from reusing a stored password.
IDOL server can also ensure that users keep passwords for a minimum duration. This option prevents users from immediately changing their password several times to return to a previous password.
To configure password and PIN code time restrictions
1.
2.
Find the [User] section or create one if it does not exist.
3.
Set the PasswordChangeDuration parameter to the maximum time users can keep a password before they must change it. After this period users must change their passwords before they can authenticate in IDOL server. For example:
PasswordChangeDuration=60days
4.
Set the PincodeChangeDuration parameter to the maximum time users can keep a PIN code before they must change it. After this period, users must change their PIN codes before they can authenticate in IDOL server. For example:
PincodeChangeDuration=60days
5.
Set the MaxNumPasswordPerUser parameter to the number of passwords that you want to store in IDOL server. Users cannot change their passwords to any of the stored passwords. For example:
MaxNumPasswordPerUser=5
6.
Set the KeepPasswordDuration parameter to the length of time that users must keep a password before they are allowed to change it again. For example:
KeepPasswordDuration=5days
