Sun Identity Manager 8.1 Business Administrator's Guide

Identity Manager Policies

Policies set limitations for Identity Manager users by establishing constraints for account ID, login, and password characteristics. Identity system account policies establish user, password, and authentication policy options and constraints. Resource password and account ID policies set length rules, character type rules, and allowed words and attribute values. A dictionary policy enables Identity Auditor to check passwords against a word database to ensure protection from simple dictionary attacks.
