Applications cannot access this attribute since it is a hidden attribute.

The Passwords Used attribute is maintained internally if Unique Passwords Required is set to True. When a password is changed, the old password value is stored in this attribute. Before a new password is accepted, this list is searched to see if the new password is already in the list. Old passwords are purged from the list when the password timestamp is older than 8 times the password expiration interval.
