Implementing the NIST password standards in Active Directory for better security, lower costs and happier users

Organizations need to screen for compromised passwords continuously because a password that was safe yesterday may not be safe today.

The NIST 800-63b passwords standards substantially revise password security recommendations and alters many of the standards which security professionals have used in the past 20 years.

NIST guidelines often become the foundation for best practice recommendations across the security industry and are incorporated into other standards.

The NIST password standard framework recommends removing periodic password change requirements, dropping algorithmic complexity and adding screening of new passwords against lists of commonly used or compromised passwords.

While these changes are hotly debated by IT and security professionals, studies have shown that these changes can increase security if implemented correctly and even Microsoft is recommending against the forced periodic password reset practice.
