Password Strength Module

Posted by Jeff Beeman on Thu, 11/15/2007 - 09:59

I've just released the first version of the Password Strength module for Drupal 5.x. The module started out as a back port of the nifty jQuery password strength checking built in to Drupal 6, but quickly grew to include other features we needed for a project at ASU. The module simply modifies existing password confirm fields (where two passwords are entered, like the user edit form), so no other setup is required beyond configuring the desired enforcement rules. The first release of the module features:

  • Client-side password strength checking using jQuery
  • Server-side password strength checking using PHP
  • Settings to control:
    • Toggle server-side enforcement of password on/off
    • Enforce low-, medium-, or high-strength passwords
  • Fully translatable
