Password Policies Overview

A password policy is a set of rules and restrictions. These rules specify password creation and expiration. When you configure a password policy in a CA Identity Manager environment, the policy applies to the user store associated with the environment. If a user directory is associated with multiple environments, a password policy defined in one environment can apply in other environments.

In a password policy, you can configure the following settings:

Note: Some of these settings require user directory mappings for certain attributes. See Enable Additional Password Policies.

SiteMinder users can also configure password policies in the SiteMinder Administrative user interface. These policies appear in the CA Identity Manager User Console.

Note: When CA Identity Manager integrates with SiteMinder, SiteMinder enforces all password policies.
