2 hours ago

1. Increase password length and reduce the focus on password complexity. In the past, advice on password security has focused heavily on the creation of complex passwords, but this often leads to the reuse of existing passwords with minor modifications.
2. Screen passwords against blacklists. Password reuse is a common problem and according to a Google/Harris survey, 52% of people reuse the same password across multiple accounts.
3. Eliminate regular password resets. Many organisations require their employees to change their passwords at regular intervals, often every 30, 60 or 90 days.
4. Allow password copy and paste. NIST has revised its previous guidance and now recommends the use of ‘copy and paste’ when typing in a password. This helps promote the use of password managers which undoubtedly increases security by enabling users to generate longer passwords which are more difficult to crack.
5. Limit Password attempts. Using brute-force attack, hackers may attempt to breach an account by systematically logging in and trying every possible combination of letters, numbers, and symbols until they work out the right password combination.
6. Don’t use password hints. Password hints are frequently used by organisations to help their users remember complex passwords. It may be a simple prompt or the user is required to answer a personal question such as ‘what city were you born in?’
7. Use Multi-Factor Authentication. Multi-factor authentication (MFA) is one of the most effective ways to provide additional protection to a password-protected account.
8. Train staff on password best practice. There’s lots of conflicting advice on what constitutes a secure password so it’s crucial that your staff understand best practice and are fully versed on what your password policy requires of them.

2. Remove periodic password reset requirements. This is one of the biggest frustrations for employees who are forced to change their passwords multiple times per year.
3. Make daily screening of new passwords against lists of common or compromised passwords mandatory. Password screening(aka password filtering or monitoring) is a critical step that organizations must factor into their cybersecurity strategy.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is new NIST guidelines mean for passwords?

The new NIST guidelines are intended to improve password security while taking the heat off your end users. They do not, however, need to be applied against all accounts.

What is the "best" password policy?

Follow password policy best practices for system administrators

  • Configure a minimum password length of at least 10 characters for passwords or 15 for passphrases.
  • Enforce password history, with at least 10 previous passwords remembered.
  • Set a minimum password age of 3 days.
  • Set a maximum password age of 90 days for passwords and 180 days for passphrases.

More items...

What are the new password requirements?

As of this policy update, the requirements are below:

  • Passwords must be changed every ninety (90) days.
  • Passwords must not be reused for at least four (4) generations.
  • Passwords must not be changed more than one (1) time per day.
  • At least four (4) characters must be changed when new passwords are created.
  • New passwords must comply with the criteria in Section 3. Password Requirements.

What is a strong password requirement?

A strong password consists of at least six characters (and the more characters, the stronger the password) that are a combination of letters, numbers and symbols (@, #, $, %, etc.) if allowed. Passwords are typically case-sensitive, so a strong password contains letters in both uppercase and lowercase.
