Active Directory comes bundled with a default password policy that defines configurable rules for user account password creation. The rules include minimum and maximum password age, length, complexity, history, and encryption settings. This traditional password policy, however, cannot be customized for a specific set of users, groups, or OUs because it is only applicable to the entire domain to which it is linked. To overcome this significant drawback, Active Directory offers the fine-grained password policy (FGPP) feature (in Windows Server 2008 and later versions) that allows password policies to be tailored to different users and groups within the domain.
ADSelfService Plus offers the Password Policy Enforcer feature to help employees in your organization set NIST-compliant, sophisticated passwords that are almost impossible to crack. With ADSelfService Plus, you can enforce custom password policies that seamlessly integrate with the built-in Active Directory password policies, providing more granular control than the latter. These custom password policies provide numerous intricate password settings, including restrictions on custom dictionary words, palindromes, and character repetitions.
