    Password Policy Manager is divided into two components:

    The Administration software is implemented as an NWADMIN and ConsoleOne snap-in for use with Windows 95, Windows 98, Windows NT and Windows 2000. (Support for Novell Portal Services has also been added.)

    The User software is implemented as a client side (DLL) snap-in for use with Windows 95, Windows 98, Windows NT and Windows 2000.

    The following are some of the policies that can be configured by the NDS administrator:

    • Password length
    • Alpha characters
    • Numeric characters
    • Maximum consecutive characters
    • Maximum instances of any character
    • Algorithm comparison with old password

    PPM works by extending the NDS schema to support Password Policy objects where you can define your desired password policies.

    Schema extensions are also made to container classes, such as Organization and Organizational Units to include a Password Policy attribute. Through this attribute, you associate the policy to be applied to the User objects in the container.

    Fully functional, 45-day evaluation.
