User Administration System

It is strongly recommended to employ the operating system to ensure authentication for the PMOD ATL users.

In a Windows environment, the Active Directory (AD) can be employed for central user administration. It supports many features for a strict user authentication policy, for instance:

Request for a password change after first login.

Request for a password change after 90 days.

Locking out of a user after 5 failed login attempts.

To employ the AD for a secure PMOD ATL installation, the following setup is proposed:

All machines running PMOD should belong to the AD.

There should be a global group "PMOD Group" for the PMOD users.

The PMOD Group should only contain PMOD users.

The AD password requirements should reflect the company security policy.

All PMOD users should be configured as "OS users".
