Username and Password

Discussion in 'ASP .Net' started by Miguel Dias Moura, Feb 17, 2006.

  1. Hello,

    I need to set a basic format for the usernames and passwords in my web
    site.
    Basically, I need to know what should be the minimum requirements for
    having a good security level.
    Something like having a password with a minimum of 8 letters (6 letters
    and 2 numbers). This is just an example.

    Anyway, I need some advice on the format to use and help on how to
    create a regular expression.

    Thanks,
    Miguel

  2. For ease of use I always use email address as the username and a
    minimum of 8 charactor password. I always state that its best to use a
    combination of letters, numbers, and special characters too (!, $,
    etc.).

    Hope this helps,
    Jeremy Reid
