Notice - Password Security Upgrade


Your company administrators will be able to configure custom password requirements by specifying:
1. Minimum password length (14-20 characters; default 14)
2. Maximum password age before it must be changed (90-365 days; default 90)
3. Minimum password age before it can be changed (0 - 8 days, a day is a 24-hour timeframe; default 0) - except using forgot password link
4. Minimum number of password iterations before reuse (24)

*If none of the above configurations are changed by your company administrators, the default values will be used.

These requirements are static for all users (and are not configurable):
- Must not contain the first node of the email address (i.e. jsmith@us.ibm.com would restrict use of jsmith)
- Must not contain 3 or more occurrences of the same character in a row
- Must contain at least one numeric and one alphabetic character
- May contain special or punctuation characters
- Account lockout after 6 failed attempts

*If you don't have a Company administrator, you can assign one by contacting IBM SaaS Customer Support.

Special Note: Passwords are protected through encryption during storage. Your company administrators (and also IBM support personnel) cannot see a user's old password when resetting it to a new temporary password. The system will force a password change when the user first logs in with that temporary password.
