Common elements file for password policy configuration

  1. On the Main tab, click
    System
    Users
    .
  2. On the menu bar, click
    Authentication
    .
  3. From the
    Secure Password Enforcement
    list, select
    Enabled
    .
    Additional settings appear on the screen.
  4. For the
    Minimum Length
    and
    Required Characters
    settings, configure the default values, according to your organization's internal security requirements.
  5. In the
    Password Memory
    field, type the number of passwords that the user cannot re-use. The valid range is from
    0
    to
    127
    .
  6. In the
    Minimum Duration
    field, type the minimum number of days before which users cannot change their passwords. The valid range is from
    0
    to
    255
    .
  7. In the
    Maximum Duration
    field, type the maximum number of days that a password is valid. Users must change their passwords before the maximum duration is reached.
    The value of this setting determines when users receive warning messages to change their passwords. If you change the value of this setting, any subsequent warning messages that users receive indicate the previous maximum duration value, rather than the new value. Once a user changes the password, however, subsequent reminder messages show the new value.
  8. In the
    Expiration Warning
    field, type the number of days before the password expires that the user receives a password expiration warning. The valid range is from
    1
    to
    255
    .
  9. In the
    Maximum Login Failures
    field, specify a number.
    If the user fails to log in the specified number of times, the user is locked out of the system. Therefore, F5 Networks recommends that you specify a value that allows for a reasonable number of login failures before user lockout.
