Default Password IT Policy

Please Login to Remove!

Searched around, but havent been able to find an answer to this one...

When creating/modifiying the IT Policy, under the Password Policy Group, then forbidden passwords: is there a way to prevent the users name from being part of the password? Can the "$N" be used in the Forbidden Password field?

Thanks,
~DBB

I guess we'll have to do the "social engineering" version of this policy.

ATTENTION BLACKBERRY STAFF
The Policy parameters for BlackBerry Passwords are as follows:
• Minimum 8 characters
• Password must contain at least 1 letter and 1 number
• Password must be changed every 90 days
• Previous 10 passwords cannot be used
• BlackBerry device will lock after 30 minutes of inactivity
• Letter repetition in passwords is restricted (e.g.: aaa, bbb, ccc)
• Your name (first or last) cannot be part of the password

Maybe the announcment will be enough to prevent them from trying it.

If it were my company, an announcement like that is enough to cause them to throw their device in a river.

Wow, Darth, even I'm not that evil (ok well maybe I am, but I'm choosing to show restraint).

but ours do lock after 15 minutes regardless of activity.

This is very similar to our policy, except we have a 6 character minimum and allow up to 60 minutes before locking.

Many of the newer devices (like my my 8830 with 4.2 OS) won't allow letter repitition, regardless of the IT Policy.

Ya'll didn't read my sig file.... Wireless Sith Lord. LOL

To address some of the comments above.
  • If they throw it in a river, I'll charge them full retail for a replacement.
  • No secondary policy. No exceptions.
  • Government entity.
Being this evil isn't easy, but it sure is fun.
