An attempt to create a single entry point for creating password policies.

Aim of this project

  • Provide information to developers as to what a good password policy is.
  • Possibly provide different language implementations with password policy check, allowing lazy developer to gain quick win status.
  • Single page web site with all information contained.
  • Possibly include live password validation example (js based).
  • Page includes list of rules (like allow spaces or deny something else) and if possible, why.
  • Section on how to encode passwords in a database (perhaps libraries should include this too)
  • Fancy logo to promote? I'm not sure, but some folk like that kind of stuff.


I've initially put 1 year of hosting in place, it's just shy of $3. Once the page is up, if you want to donate, please drop me a paypal donation (to remy at remysharp) with the number of years you want to cover. I'm happy to host on my hosting platform (unless someone wants to take over).


Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
