 The system can be enabled or disabled, and when enabled, two different level of checks con
be done : relaxed or strict. We use a parameter to specify the kind of check we do on the
password : _ads-pwdCheckQuality_, which can take three values :
 
 	* 0 : The password is not checked
-	* 1 : We check the password when we can, ie when it's not hashed. When the password is hashed,

+</DIV>
+
+A password may have a limited life expectation, and when this age is reached, the password
will be invalidated. This is configured through the _ads-pwdMaxAge_ parameter, which contains
the number of second a password will last.
+
+This password invalidation can be overruled by the two next parameters
+
+#### Password grace auth N limit
+
+<DIV class="info" markdown="1">
+Impacted Attribute : ads-pwdGraceAuthNLimit
+</DIV>
+
+When the password has expired, this parameter (_ads-pwdGraceAuthNLimit_) tells how many times
a user will still be allowed to bind before the password is definitively locked. Each attempt
will decrement the associated counter.
+
+#### Paswword grace Expire
+
+<DIV class="info" markdown="1">
+Impacted Attribute : ads-pwdGraceExpire
+</DIV>
+
+Another option when the password has expired is to give the user the possibility to log in
during a certain period of time. This is mainly useful when the _ads-pwdGraceAuthNLimit_ is
set : not only there is a limited number of attempts, but those attempts must be done in a
limited period of time, ortherwise the password will be locked.
+
+If the configuration of the _ads-pwdGraceAuthNLimit_ is 0, the _ads-pwdGraceExpire_ value
is simply added to the _ads-pwdMaxAge_ value.
