Subj:   Re: Extra security elements

Check out the DBC.SysSecDefaults table. There are a number of system level controls you can set for userids.

     DBC.SysSecDefaults
              PrimeIndex
              ExpirePassword
              PasswordMinChar
              PasswordMaxChar
              PasswordDigits
              PasswordSpecChar
              MaxLogonAttempts
              LockedUserExpire
              PasswordReuse

As for expiring a specific group of user's passwords, the easiest way to do that would be to add them to a Profile and define the password specific criteria at the Profile level.

Example:

     create profile M3_ACCT_200GB_Expire as
       account = ('$M3ACCT$&D&H&S')
       default database = null
       spool = 214748364780
       temporary = 214748364780
       password = ( expire = 60   (Password expires after 60 days)
                  , minchar = 6   (Password must have at least 6 characters)
                  , maxchar = 30   (Password can have up to 30 characters)
                  , digits = 'y'   (Allow numbers in the password)
                  , specchar = 'y'   (Allow special characters in
                                      the password, *&$#)
                  , maxlogonattempts = 6   (userid locked after
                                            6 failed attempts)
                  , lockeduserexpire = 1440   (userid is automatically unlocked
                                               after 1440 minutes, aka. 24 hours)
                  , reuse = 240 );   (Password can be reused after 240 days)

     Comment on profile M3_ACCT_200GB_Expire as
         'Accounting users with a Spool limit of 200GB and passwords expire after 60 days.';
