Complexity requirements for local CIFS user passwords

jbielasz

Hi,

 

I would like to adjust complexity requirements (increase minimum length) for local CIFS users.

I cannot find how to modify below complexity setting.

Can someone help ?

 

clus01::*> cifs security show -vserver svm02 -fields is-password-complexity-required
vserver is-password-complexity-required
--------------- -------------------------------
svm02 true

 

The password must meet the following criteria:

  • Must be at least six characters in length
  • Must not contain the user account name
  • Must contain characters from at least three of the following four categories:
    • English uppercase characters (A through Z)
    • English lowercase characters (a through z)
    • Base 10 digits (0 through 9)
    • Special characters:

      ~ ! @ # $ % ^ & * _ - + = ` \ | ( ) [ ] : ; " ' < > , . ? /  

Regards,

Jakub

Hi there!

 

Sorry for the delay on this one - and the bad news.

 

It's a binary option - either on or off, and cannot be customised. If more complexity is required, it is advised to use domain authentication and enforce it there.

 

Thanks!

That's what I thought.
