These restrictions are enforced whenever a new password is defined for a user. By keeping restrictions in the default stanza of the file, the same restrictions are enforced on all users.

MKYONG12$ , lower case character is required Unit test with Test NG.This regular expression pattern is very useful to implement a strong and complex password.1.

Password options and extended user attributes are located in the file.This is an ASCII file that contains attribute stanzas for users.Some or all of the following steps may be taken to secure your SSH server.

The steps are sorted roughly in order of entirely sensible precaution to completely paranoid: ### top 5 most recently attacked accounts ### lastb | awk '' | sort | uniq -c | sort -rn | head -5 29 root 24 admin 16 sales 14 test 14 staff ### top 5 most attacked accounts ### awk 'gsub(".*sshd.*Failed password for (invalid user )?

The following table lists recommended values for some security attributes related to user passwords in the Minimum number of weeks before a password can be changed.

This should not be set to a non zero value unless administrators are always easy to reach to reset an accidentally compromised password that was recently changed.

=.*[a-z]).*$ Description of this regular expression is as below: Passwords will contain at least 1 upper case letter Passwords will contain at least 1 lower case letter Passwords will contain at least 1 number or special character Passwords will contain at least 8 characters in length Password maximum length should not be arbitrarily limited let me know if you want any change in current regular expression according to your requirements.

=.*[A-Z]) # must contains one uppercase characters (?

The operating system also provides a method for administrators to extend the password restrictions.
