Password Policy

Where possible, MikroCloud auto-generates passwords for users, but in some cases, users are required to set their own passwords. This document outlines the password policy for MikroCloud.

Password Requirements

The following are the requirements for a password in MikroCloud:

  1. Minimum Length: The password must be at least 8 characters long.
  2. Required Characters: The password must contain at least one uppercase letter, one lowercase letter, one number, and one special character.
  3. Password History: New passwords should not match the last three passwords.

Secure Password Storage

MikroCloud stores passwords using one-way hashing. This means that passwords are not stored in plain text. When a user logs in, the password they enter is hashed and compared to the stored hash. If the hashes match, the authentication workflow continues.

This method ensures that even if a treat actor gains access to the database where passwords are stored, they cannot reverse-engineer the passwords.
