[Fedora-directory-devel] Request for reviews and comments: [Bug 216983] New: Make random password generation work with policies Noriko Hosoi Mon Nov 27 18:23:10 2006
Summary: Make random password generation work with policies https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=216983 Description of problem: passwd_modify_generate_passwd (passwd_extop.c) always generates 8-bytes random characters made by PK11_GenerateRandom and ldif_base64_encode. It needs to generate a password which follows the password policy if it's defined. ------- Additional Comments From [EMAIL PROTECTED] 2006-11-27 14:18 EST ------- Created an attachment (id=142208) --> (https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/attachment.cgi?id=142208&action=view) cvs diff (passwd_extop.c) File: ldap/servers/slapd/passwd_extop.c Changes: 1. Renamed passwd_modify_generate_passwd to passwd_modify_generate_basic_passwd, which algorithm is used when no specific password rule or just the minimum length is given. 2. If some other rules are set, passwd_modify_generate_policy_passwd is called and generates a password which fulfills the requirement. Note: this password generator does not support passwordMin8Bit. If it generates a password which includes 8-bit characters, most likely they won't be able to be displayed or input from the users' keyboard. We should note it in the doc... ------- Additional Comments From [EMAIL PROTECTED] 2006-11-27 14:21 EST ------- Created an attachment (id=142213) --> (https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/attachment.cgi?id=142213&action=view) generated password sample Attached is the sample output from ldappasswd. Do you think this quality ofthe randomness satisfies the requirement?
