user passwords

Postby JCISteve » Sun Feb 17, 2013 7:44 pm

s there a plugin or setting that i can use to increase user password security? we recently had to upgrade to j3 due to a breach in our security. as of yet we have not allowed users to re-register. i am holding off until i can find a way to force-require user passwords to be stronger. i want to eliminate passwords like i.e. 1234 , cleaning, cleaning1 and force passwords like cLeaning5! i feel that the inclusion of a capital letter, symbol and number will strengthen our security. I have tested password strength test, but it only tells the user if they have a strong pw, but doesnt stop registration of the desired pw's we are wanting.

Wow. 550 views and no replies. I am beginning to think that this is not possible with joomla.

That wasn't your question! Joomla allows you to create plugins, so it is possible. Whether such a plugins exist? Look for it in the Joomla Extension Directory (JED)!
Issue with migrating? Include logs/joomla_update.php in your report!
Blank screen? Verify pagesource for HTML code (javascript error)
Installation failing on populating database? Install with set_time_limit(0)
Document your customizations!

Maybe user "sovainfo" is trying to tell you in his/her way that you will find some good extensions for your needs at http://extensions.joomla.org/search?q=password+strength

I would agree, but i woul;d think "salvo" would know forum etiquette. Someone with 990 post compared to on with under 15, should understand that more than likely, the user with the post under 15 more than likely DOES NOT know how to write a plugin for this system. They were simply asking for help. A little direction would have been better served here, and next time salvo... Loose the !!!!! points.They come across as being rude and attitude filled in your reply.

As for Leo. ty, i will give the link you provided a try. Thanks.

Salvo, I am looking for help, not a discussion of other topics. Please keep your comments contained to that area in a format that is consistent within those guidelines. Thank you.
