How do most dba's enforce password complexity. Would the enforcement unvalidate someone's password or just enforce complexity on the new ones?

Thanks!

hi

A script named utlpwdmg.sql is already provided by Oracle to implement password complexity. You can find it at $ORACLE_HOME/rdbms/admin location.

Amend this script as per your requirement and run as sys.

do some documentation reading also, it would be better.

regards,
tarun

Or else, you can create a function of your own & use that for password verification. You can include any complexity in this function, that you want to have for your database.

Syntax:
alter profile profile-name limit password_verify_function function-name;

eg:
ALTER PROFILE developer LIMIT
password_verify_function uw_pwd_verification;
