New Login Security Features in ICA-AtoM 1.3!

If you are running the latest release of ICA-AtoM (version 1.3, available here ), administrators now have the ability to:

  • force users to create strong passwords (using a mix of upper and lower case letters, numbers, and symbols),
  • force all authenticated user requests to use secure network communication ( Wiki page for https), and
  • limit incoming requests for all Administrator functionality to a static IP range.

By default, these settings are turned off, and must be turned on by an administrator in Administer > Settings > Security.

  • For more information on using these new login security features, please see the Administer > Settings > Security page of the User Manual.
  • See, Security Documentation for more information about ICA-AtoM:
