Password complexity requirements
What are the password requirements?
OpenLearning enforces passwords that are a minimum of 8 characters, and a maximum of 64 characters.
Passwords must contain at least one character from one of the following groups:
- lowercase characters
- uppercase characters
- numerical digits
- special characters (any character which is not a letter or digit)
Passwords must not contain white-space characters, and must not contain similarities to other user fields (email, name).
Note, as per NIST recommendations passwords are not required to be changed arbitrarily (e.g. periodically).
