Account Policies

Windows NT 4.0
Windows 2000
To see these options, click the Accounts tab in the Smart Card Security
Manager, then click the
These options allow you to:
Let the user add, remove or modify accounts (refer to page 65).
Set a random password policy for users. This means that when the
user changes their Windows NT password or adds a Windows NT
account on their smart card, they can be forced to use a random
password, have the option to use a random password or be requested
to choose a password on their own.

password will be hidden from all users. This may provide a higher
security level since it ensures that the only entry to the PC (for
users) is using their smart card

Lower
This setting means the user cannot randomly generate a password – they
must choose one themselves.
If you have set the Manual Logon option to Everybody (refer to page 49),
this option should be set to Deny. This will ensure the user can type in their
Windows password when doing a manual logon. However, this
configuration provides little or no security improvement.
Medium
The user can ask the system to generate a random password for them, or
choose their own.
For example, in the Change Account Password screen, the user is
encouraged to select a password of their own (since the cursor is in the New
Password box).
Higher
The user can ask the system to generate a random password for them, or
choose their own.
For example, in the Change Account Password screen, the user is
encouraged to ask the system to generate a random password (since this
option is checked by default).
