[CDB] Password Strength

Post by VSE » Thu Nov 07, 2013 7:10 pm

Image Password Strength

Description:
An extension for phpBB 3.1 that will show users how strong (or weak) their password is as they type it into the password field.

This extension is a port of my MOD from phpBB 3.0.x.

Features:
  • Password strength is indicated visually. The password field will change colors as the user types in a password, displaying red for weak passwords through green for strong passwords.
  • Below the password field a text indicator will also appear describing the password strength as 'Very Weak', 'Weak', 'Good', 'Strong' and 'Very Strong'.
  • Password Strength is active on new user registration, and in the UCP and ACP areas where you can change existing passwords to new passwords.
  • Password strength is graded by finding the following criteria in a password:
    • Contains a minimum of 6 characters
    • Contains mixed case letters
    • Contains numbers
    • Contains special characters
    • Password exceeds 12 characters
Requirements:
  • phpBB 3.1.0-RC2 or higher
  • PHP 5.3.3 or higher
Repository: https://github.com/VSEphpbb/passwordstrength

Installation:
  • Download the latest release and unzip it.
  • Copy the entire contents from the unzipped folder to phpBB/ext/vse/passwordstrength/
  • Navigate in the ACP to Customise -> Manage extensions.
  • Find Password Strength under "Disabled Extensions" and click Enable.

Important: This Extension can only be installed on phpBB 3.1. Do NOT use this on a live board. It should only be installed for testing purposes or just to check it out. No support will be provided.

Would the minimum number of characters be customizable? These days, 6 characters, is too low. 8 is the absolutely minimum I would allow.

You are able to change the password requirements in ACP -> User Registration Settings to set the minimum and maximum characters allowed and what characters are allowed.
Always use the Support Board for phpBB support. One PM answers one. One post answers many.

Right, I know that. If I have the minimum requirements at 8, will this extension display that on the password strength, or default to 6?

The registration page shows whatever you have in your Registration Settings.

The Password strength checker has just been updated to start showing your password's strength the moment you start typing now.

I am considering upping the minimum character test from 6 to 8, as well as from 12 to 16 (meaning you'd need 16 or more characters to achieve a Very Strong password).

But even with those changes, a 4 character password like a!A1 would still be rated as "Good" because it meets 3 of the 5 requirements (mixed case, numbers and symbols).
