5. Common password combinations

Learn the answer to the fifth question in SearchSAP.com's exclusive SAP Basis quiz. Read the answer and detailed information on how to avoid common password combinations.

5. To prevent the use of common password combinations, a system can be set up to include:

a) A list of forbidden passwords in table USR40
b) Instance profile parameter "login/min_password_digits"
c) A list of forbidden passwords in table USR04.
d) No additional configuration, as SAP only allows complex passwords.

ANSWERS: A, B

To avoid this problem, populate Table USR40 with forbidden or illegal passwords combinations. Also, as of Web AS 6.10, instance profile parameter "login/min_password_digits" can be set to a value >= 1 to force users enter at least one digit in their password.
