PostgreSQL credcheck extension

The credcheck PostgreSQL extension provides few general credential checks, which will be evaluated during the user creation, during the password change and user renaming. By using this extension, we can define a set of rules:

  • allow a specific set of credentials
  • reject a certain type of credentials
  • enforce use of an expiration date with a minimum and maximal of days for a password
  • define a password reuse policy

Release v1.1 adds the missing capability to enforce the use of an expiration date for a password with a maximum of days. Example: credcheck.password_valid_max = 365, the password life time must not be set beyond one year.
