Defining a Password Policy

On the Kore Password Policy page in the Security module of the Enterprise Admin Console, you can define and enable minimum password length, requirement for inclusion of special characters, and password expiration policies for Kore account passwords used to log on Kore when Single Sign-On (SSO) is not used.

Kore password policies give you the capability to ensure all Kore account passwords in your domain for managed users are complex and secure.

You can define password policies to ensure your domain managed users create and use complex passwords. Long passwords with numerical, alphabetical, and special characters can help to prevent access to Kore accounts by malicious attackers.

The following illustration shows the controls on the Password Policy page in the Security module of the Enterprise Admin Console.

The following table describes Password Policy page controls.

Next Steps

A new password policy takes effect at the next managed user log on. For more information, see Create a Password Policy.

If you are already using Single Sign-On and want your managed users to log on using passwords defined by a password policy, you must first disable SSO. For more information, see Enable Password Policies.
