Organizations must establish a standard for the creation, maintenance, and storage of strong passwords. There are currently two approaches an organization should review when implementing a password policy. The first is to follow all guidelines provided by the National Institute of Standards and Technology’s (NIST) password recommendations, as listed in Special Publication (SP) 800-63B, Section If an organization is unable to follow NIST SP 800-63B due to budgetary or technological constraints, it is recommended that the following be used while working towards the NIST standard.


  • Implement complexity rules that:
    • Allow for a minimum password length of 14 characters.
    • Force passwords to contain uppercase and lowercase letters, numbers 0 through 9, and non-alphanumeric characters.
    • Do not allow repetitive or sequential characters (e.g. ‘aaaaaa’, ‘abc123’).
    • Do not allow context-specific words, including usernames and their derivatives.

To calculate the entropy (strength) of a password, the character set is raised to the power of the password length. There are 26 uppercase, 26 lowercase, 10 digit, and 33 ASCII-printable symbols available on the average keyboard. A computer can guess over 1 billion passwords per second.
