The weak password report results and the 10 point security checkup report weak password results do not match. (NETIQKB72948)

This document (7772948) is provided subject to the disclaimer at the end of this document.

Environment

Netiq Security Solutions for iSeries 8.0

Netiq Security Solutions for iSeries 8.1

Situation

The weak password report (from PSMENU, take options 1,1,8,20 and 12) results and the 10 point security checkup (from PSMENU, take options 1,1,9 and7) weak password results do not match.

Resolution

For versions of the NetIQ Security Solutions for iSeries v8.0 and up, the 10point Security Checkup Report does not use the same criteria as the Profiles with Weak Passwords Report.  The 10point Security Checkup Report uses a smaller list of potential passwords (approximately 43,250 words) to check against than the Profiles with Weak Passwords (very extensive list, millions of words).  To change the list used for the Profiles with Weak Passwords, please refer to the PSPasswordManager User Guide.  The 10point Security Checkup Report cannot change the list of words it uses.
