Default SQL Passwords


I have the dubious honor of updating the security component of the main application the firm I work for puts out. In short, we want to make sure that SQL logins maintain policy, expiration, etc. as NT logins would.

That is the easy part.

QA came back and said, "It's not honoring the past password list" Nothing I can find even hints that it is possible to do this programmatically. To change the passwords I am using ALTER LOGIN, which works just dandy for the other trivial details of password management. However, nothing I can dredge up in LOGINPROPERTIES or any system catalogues lets me determine if my "reallyNewComplexPassword1" is the same one as I just changed it from.

Anyone have any idea where I can even start to look?

What database are we talking about? Oracle? SQL Server?

If it's a relatively recent version of SQL Server, search google using the following search terms: SQL Server Password Policy "Enforce password history"

If you are using Windows authentication, then SQL Server supports password history (by setting the appropriate password policies in the domain server.) SQL Server authentication does not not enforce password history checks, however.

If it's Oracle, take a look here.
