Hardening Password Authentication

A quick walk-thru for Enzoic for Active Directory

Extensive research showed that old-school password rules made them harder for users to remember but easier for hackers to guess.

As a result, standards like NIST 800-63B now require checking against commonly used, easy to guess, or compromised passwords. They also recommend eliminating periodic password expiration, requiring reset only when compromise is suspected.

See how Enzoic:

  • improves the security of passwords - the authentication layer already in use
  • prevents reusing compromised credentials and detects when existing credentials become vulnerable
