Description

17 years ago
When you are changing your password, the client should be able to do things
along the lines of:
-see if the user name is in the new password
-see if the password is in the localized dictionary
-see if the password matches some rules based the above items (e.g. user name
spelled backwards)

Questions:
-Should you be able to override the objections of the client if you choose a
weak password?
-Where is the threshold for quality? How complicated should the client make the
password?  There is a tradeoff here.
