Only registered users can see links on this board! Get registered or login! one that looks easy enough to install. But there are a couple of VERY big problems with it.

First, it's a service that you can integrate, not code that you install. I would NOT recommend using a service that checks the validity of your password since there are no guarantees that it wouldn't be linked to your IP address and used in unauthorized ways.

Second, there is no explanation as to how the strength is calculated. As far as we know, it could be RANDOM...

I did a little research and found quite a few alternatives, each with different approaches. Some had graphics, some did not. Some gave feedback as to how to make the password more secure, others just a score or rating. I'd like to investigate this further when I have time to figure out different approaches and compare them. I'll look at the example you gave, too.

hitwalker, have you looked into this already?

it clearly says "that's using CNBYA" I see nothing about using this as is on a regular nuke ya module.

Right - that's what s60addict wants - to use this with the regular Nuke YA module.

Yes, his mod that he posted is not for that. That was all that I was pointing out. S60 also has a ton of mods installed which from his posts seem to all have issues on his site. It might be wise to sort them all out and be certain that the site is working before adding anything new. However, that is just my opinion. Either way, maybe something you found will work for him because the one he posted clearly will not. The only reason that I posted that was becuase in his original post he stated that it said it would work with any YA module but it clearly does not say that.

Agree. I'll look at this one too. My main concern isn't how it looks, but the algorithm it uses to determine strength. What factors are important? For example:

Length, vowels vs. consonants, upper vs. lower case, special characters?
What about similarity to username or email?
What about checking a database of common passwords or some advanced routine for checking security?

I have packed up and added all these option to the downloads on my site. I suppose that way anyone later who needs them can find them more simply. Sometimes links in posts die. I have learned that the hard way lol.

Know what you mean, technocrat. What are your thoughts on the algorithm for determining password strength?

I read everything posted here before I made the orginal script, minus the nukecops post. Really it comes down to how much effort you want to put into it and how much you want to twist people's arms. After pondering that for awhile that's why I came up with the script I did. Its pretty simple and just checks for the real basics and has no enforcement.

I might change that in Evo 3, but I am unsure. If I did I would make it as flexible as I can. You do not want to force admins into doing something they may not want to do.

Personally I think, unless it's an Admin or Super User account, who cares about the strength and/or complexity of their passwords?!

What am I missing here? Why force everybody to have Enterprise quality passwords? What's the benefit that would outweigh frustrating your users and possibly making them go somewhere else?

I downloaded and installed the Microsoft Password strength checker that arnoldkrg was talking about in this post:
Only registered users can see links on this board! Get registered or login!

I changed a couple of things because I didn't want the js to load in every page instance, just the pages which allow registration. It takes in account for length, numbers, capitals when it determines strength. I just saw it as a useful feature. Members can still have 1234 as a password, but it tells them it is a weak password. For members who care, or admins who have large sites the addon can have advantages by giving members a hint when they register as to how easy it will be to "guess" their password.
