The following list represents a best-practice approach to password control for sites that need to maintain high security standards, for example, Common Criteria Compliance. See Setting Up a System for Common Criteria Compliance.
  • Passwords must be at least 8 characters in length and not exceed 30 characters (unless a longer password is required).
  • Passwords must use a combination of alpha, numeric, and special characters.
  • The username must be locked after 3 unsuccessful logons and stay locked for 5 minutes.
  • The username cannot be part of the password.
  • Passwords should expire at least every 90 days.
  • Restrict reuse of passwords for at least 270 days.
