On Elium, we offer 3 password security levels:
Low: ensures the password is different from the user name
Medium: also requires the password to be minimum 8 characters long and to containg enough different characters
High: additionally checks the password for simplistic patterns and resemblance to a dictionary word. Repetition and palindromes are not allowed
By default, the security level is medium on Elium platforms. The administrator can change this setting from the administration interface, under the 'Security' tab.
An account is suspended after 5 unsuccessful attempts. It is re-enabled automatically after a period of 10 minutes; it is not possible to reactivate it manually
