Hi Sree,

Not sure if this is possible, but maybe instead of requireAtLeastOneSpecialCharacter boolean, you could do minSpecialCharacters int (0-n)? This would allow more rigorous password policies.

Hi All,

The UAA team is in the process of implementing Password Policy feature<https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=https-3A__www.pivotaltracker.com_story_show_82182984&d=AwMFaQ&c=IV_clAzoPDE253xZdHuilRgztyh_RiV3wUrLrDQYWSI&r=8jfAtIC0enmugg7W93b4MxFNUdrneLwx6fyzU0yk9a8&m=wNYpag6E0rnGEhlO0X3GJ5d5Hz4fOBCSAOh8yveJ_mw&s=_wh20YK4sGow4AtgdhZx-n4fIJ4x2UiApoSSG8jVOCs&e=> for users stored in UAA.
The following properties around password strength will be exposed in the YML configuration.

#passwordPolicy:
# minLength: 8
# requireAtLeastOneSpecialCharacter: true
# requireAtLeastOneUppercaseCharacter: true
# requireAtLeastOneLowercaseCharacter: true
# requireAtLeastOneDigit: true

The Password Policy feature is being implemented to support multi-tenant UAA. Each Tenant/Identity Zone will get its own password policy. The password policy for the default zone will be configurable via YML.


UAA currently supports the zxcvbn<https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=https-3A__blogs.dropbox.com_tech_2012_04_zxcvbn-2Drealistic-2Dpassword-2Dstrength-2Destimation_&d=AwMFaQ&c=IV_clAzoPDE253xZdHuilRgztyh_RiV3wUrLrDQYWSI&r=8jfAtIC0enmugg7W93b4MxFNUdrneLwx6fyzU0yk9a8&m=wNYpag6E0rnGEhlO0X3GJ5d5Hz4fOBCSAOh8yveJ_mw&s=b9G7EEOsCOiXnLJMJTaDbWyjwr386z7IQ5_5wvRZ6ew&e=> style password score. This is currently exposed via the following properties in the YML configuration file. There is an end point<https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=https-3A__github.com_cloudfoundry_uaa_blob_master_docs_UAA-2DAPIs.rst-23query-2Dthe-2Dstrength-2Dof-2Da-2Dpassword-2Dpost-2Dpassword-2Dscore&d=AwMFaQ&c=IV_clAzoPDE253xZdHuilRgztyh_RiV3wUrLrDQYWSI&r=8jfAtIC0enmugg7W93b4MxFNUdrneLwx6fyzU0yk9a8&m=wNYpag6E0rnGEhlO0X3GJ5d5Hz4fOBCSAOh8yveJ_mw&s=JO1Yuq0GHq5FoW8uEHIMP-UNRnynikwtdSksZ0gklXk&e=> for querying the status of the same.

password-policy:

required-score: <int>

We would like to understand if this password score feature is being utilized at all. We don't plan on making this feature multi-tenant and would like to drop this in favor of the new approach which is much more granular and supports multi tenancy.
