HP Enterprise - Configure the Account Policy settings

Introduction
The HP Embedded Web Server (EWS) provides features to increase printer security. These features include the option to protect administrator and remote configuration accounts by locking an administrator account after too many failed log in attempts, and by enabling password complexity requirements.
  note:
Remote configuration accounts include access to management tools, such as Web JetAdmin.
Step one: Access the HP Embedded Web Server (EWS)
  1. FutureSmart 3: From the Home screen on the printer control panel, touch the Network button to display the IP address or host name.
    FutureSmart 4: From the Home screen on the printer control panel, touch the Information icon, and then touch the Network icon to display the IP address or host name.
  2. Open a Web browser, and in the address line, type the IP address or host name of the printer exactly as it displays on the printer control panel. Press the Enter key on the computer keyboard. The EWS opens.

      note:
    If the Web browser displays a message indicating that accessing the website might not be safe, select the option to continue to the website. Accessing this website will not harm the computer.
Step two: Configure the Account Policy settings
Enable account lockout
The Account lockout feature allows administrators to specify the number of failed log in attempts before the printer enters Protected Mode, which makes the account unavailable for the duration of the lockout period.
  note:
Before reducing the number of maximum log in attempts, make sure that the total number of EWS credentials stored in Web Jetadmin do not exceed the number of allowed log in attempts. If the number of credentials exceeds the number of log in attempts, a status communication error might occur if Web Jetadmin discovers a new printer.
  1. Click the Security tab.
  2. Open the Account Policy menu.
  3. In the area labeled Local Administrator Password or the area labeled Remote Configuration Password, select Enable account lockout.
  4. In Maximum attempts, type the number of times an administrator can enter an incorrect password before being locked out of the account.
      note:
    The default number of attempts is 5. The allowable number of attempts can range between 3 and 30.
  5. In Lockout interval, type the number of seconds for which the account will be locked.
      note:
    The default number of seconds is 300. The allowable number of seconds can range between 5 and 1800 seconds.
  6. In Reset lockout counter interval, type the number of seconds that must pass after a failed log in attempt before the failed log in attempt counter resets to 0.
      note:
    The default number of seconds is 300. The allowable number of seconds can range between 5 and 1800 seconds.
  7. Click the Apply button to save the settings.
Enable password complexity
The password complexity feature allows the administrator to specify the password characteristics that users must have in the passwords that they use to access the HP Embedded Web Server (EWS).
  1. Click the Security tab.
  2. Open the Account Policy menu.
  3. In the area labeled Local Administrator Password or the area labeled Remote Configuration Password, select Enable Password Complexity.
      note:
    When password complexity is enabled, administrator account passwords must contain three of the following characteristics:
    Uppercase letters
    Lowercase letters
    Numbers
    Special Characters
  4. In Minimum password length, type the minimum numbers of characters that the password must contain.
      note:
    The default number of characters is 0, which indicates that the minimum number of characters is disabled and that no password is required to access an account. The number of characters required in a password can range from 0 to 16.
  5. Click the Apply button to save the settings.
