Password strength and expiration

AMODIT can use two types of authentication:

  1. Web forms - acounts stored in internal database
  2. Active Directory
Second type is usually used when customer already has AD. It gives "single sign on" and many security policies. For the first type of authentication those options were very limited, till now.
Now AMODIT is checking for strenght of password, so it has to contain at least one small letter, one capital letter, one digit and one special character. Administrator can also define minimal length of password (8 by default).
Furthermore, administrator can define number of day password is valid. Then it expires and user has to select new one.

This functions give proper level of security also for internal AMODIT account.
