Minimum Password length 7500 series

Hi

What is the command for setting up the policy for password lenght in 7500 series (supported IOS ) ?

What is the command to set number of failed attempts on TACACS authenticated users and also on local authenticated users? ( on 7500 series routers )

Any link on cisco.com , would appreciate.

Thankx in advance.

Re: Minimum Password length 7500 series

The command was introduced in IOS 12.3(1)

Re: Minimum Password length 7500 series

Hi,

Please check if this applies to your need,

"Setting Options for User Account Disablement" for TACACS:

http://www.cisco.com/univercd/cc/td/doc/product/access/acs_soft/csacs4nt/acs40/user/u.htm#wp273167

"Failed attempts exceed?Check the Failed attempts exceed check box and then type the number of consecutive unsuccessful login attempts to allow before disabling the account."

"Login Password Retry Lockout" for Local authentication:

http://www.cisco.com/univercd/cc/td/doc/product/software/ios124/124cg/hsec_c/part05/ch05/h_cilprl.htm

"aaa local authentication attempts max-fail "

"security authentication failure rate"

http://www.cisco.com/univercd/cc/td/doc/product/software/ios124/124cr/hsec_r/sec_s1h.htm#wp1222532

And Rohit as already provided information about "security passwords min-length":

http://www.cisco.com/univercd/cc/td/doc/product/software/ios124/124cr/hsec_r/sec_s1h.htm#wp1204059

All the IOS commands are from 12.4 code documentation.

Regards,

Prem
