Password Validators are responsible for determining whether a proposed password is acceptable for use and could include checks like ensuring it meets minimum length requirements, that it has an appropriate range of characters, or that it is not in the history.
The password policy for a user specifies the set of password validators that should be used whenever that user provides a new password. In order to activate a password validator, the corresponding configuration entry must be enabled, and the DN of that entry should be included in the password-validator attribute of the password policy in which you want that validator active. All password validator configuration entries must contain the password-validator structural objectclass.
