Subject RE: [PROPOSAL] Adding a plugin to check the password strength of all users
Date Fri, 18 Jul 2014 16:58:40 GMT
So the plugin will show the strength AND it will enforce the strength when a user is created
or updates his password.  Will it be possible for an administrator to disable either of these?

For both of those capabilities is the plugin's behavior configurable for different authentication
encoders?  That is, could I have one set of rules for the SHA256 authenticator and a different
set of rules for the MD5 authenticator?

Will show the strength of the password as well.
