To make it easier for administrators to enforce strong password practices, Kadeck Teams Enterprise allows you to set up a password policy. This feature is part of our commitment to providing robust security options for our users.
A password policy is a set of rules designed to enhance security by encouraging users to employ strong passwords and use them properly. The password policy feature in Kadeck allows administrators to define these rules, either by creating a custom policy using regular expressions, or by choosing from a list of available predefined policies.
Setting up a password policy in Kadeck is simple:
The password policy you set is used in two scenarios:
Please note that the password policy feature applies to all users.
The password policy is ignored if LDAP is enabled as the authentication is handled by the directory service.
Upon the first start of Kadeck, an initial user called "admin" is created with the password "admin". This initial password will very likely not meet your configured password policy. By default, the system allows "admin" as a password, but administrators are strongly encouraged to change this password as soon as possible for security reasons.
