3.1.2.10 mindigit

Information

Defines the minimum number of digits in a password.

Rationale:

In setting the mindigit attribute, the password must contain a digit when it is changed by the user.

Solution

In /etc/security/user, set the default user stanza mindigit attribute to 1:

chsec -f /etc/security/user -s default -a mindigit=1

This means that there must be at least 1 digit within a password.

Default Value:

default mindigit=0
