Hello,

I would like to require all users to have a minimum password length of at least 9 and that the password must contain 3 of the 4 following items:

1. lower-case letters
2. upper-case letters
3. numbers
4. symbols

Is there a way to do this?

Thanks
jlimited

At this time, we are experimenting with the ability to require minimum password strength via the cPanel interface for setting passwords. Currently, this is only in our EDGE build.

However, in terms of requiring a minimum length, you may wish to put in a separate feature request for that at:

http://bugzilla.cpanel.net

Currently, we are focusing on overall password strength, not password length (which is a component of password strength).

You can configure PAM to allow only your required parameters for passwords. However, right now cPanel doesn't fully integrate with PAM therefore the cPanel interface would allow passwords incompatible with the PAM configuration. This can result in some confusion for your end users as cPanel would accept a password as valid only to have PAM reject it.
