GoldMine : Password Policies

Another new security measure in GoldMine is the ability to set a password policy. This is done system-wide and applies to all users.

To do this, go to Tools | Configure | System Settings.
Click on the "Password Policy" tab.
You can set a minimum length, whether or not to block after three unsuccessful attempts, and also save a password history that cannot be repeated.

To set up password expiration, this is done on a per-user basis.

1. Go to Tools | Users Settings
2. Change the "Valid for Days" value.

You'll notice the "Next Change" date becomes activated after you choose x number of days.

Caveat; I once worked in a place that forced password changes every month. And as you walked around the office, on virtually every desk (usually on a stickynote) was each users password. So I guess the moral of the story is to use with care.

As we’ve noted, there is incentive for developers to wait for iOS 8.4. An iOS 8.4 jailbreak would last longer since the update will most likely be the last big update that iOS 8 receives. iOS 9 isn’t expected to land until the fall.
