Strong passwords with cracklib user registration

Post by axelsauerhoefer » Fri Sep 21, 2007 9:17 am

Hi forum,

i plan to write a plugin which checks user password against the cracklib pecl extension on user registration process. For this a new event must be triggerd at user registration maybe onUserRegistration.

Exists some concern ? If true i will implement the new feature this weekend and post a patch.

best regards,
