Create forbidden password list for use in policies

For policies of type Password, you can create a list of forbidden passwords to define character sequences that must not be used in passwords.

Note: In the lists, forbidden passwords are separated by line breaks.

The text files containing the required information have to be created before you can register them in the SafeGuard Management Center. The maximum file size for text files is 50 KB. SafeGuard Enterprise only uses Unicode UTF-16 coded texts. If you create the text files in another format, they will be automatically converted when they are registered.

If a file is converted, a message is displayed.

To register text files:

  1. In the policy navigation area, right-click Texts and select New > Text.
  2. Enter a name for the text to be displayed in the Text item name field.
  3. Click [...] to select the text file previously created. If the file needs to be converted, a message will be displayed.
  4. Click OK.

The new text item is displayed as a subnode below Texts in the policy navigation area. If you select a text item, its contents are displayed in the window on the right-hand side. The text item can now be selected when creating policies.

Proceed as described to register further text items. All registered text items are shown as subnodes.

Note: Use the Modify Text button to add new text to existing text. When you click this button, a dialog is displayed for selecting another text file. The text contained in this file is appended to the existing text.
