Features

This plugins integrates multiple features to increase the strength of your users passwords.

Password Policies

Password policies are modeled after Microsoft's Active Directory policies. You define a number character types that should be used in a password and how many of them have to be used. Users will be denied to change their password to anything that does not match the configured policy.

You may also specify that the password may not match the user name, or even parts of the user name.

Passwords can also be checked against a list of the 10,000 most commonly used ones.

Configuration is done in the Config Manager.

Password Generation

The plugin exchanges DokuWiki's default password generation with a better one using a much stronger random generator. The generator will also take your configured password policy into account and create matching passwords.

You may also specify how strong generated passwords should be by giving the minimum number of bits of informations in them. The higher the number the stronger the password.

The generator supports three types of passwords:

  • completely random passwords
  • pronouncable passwords (as in DokuWiki's default generator)
  • passphrases made up from a big list of English words and words in your wiki

Configuration is done in the Config Manager.

Password Strength Indicator

The plugin adds a simple password strength indicator to all forms where new passwords can be set by the user or administrator.
