forcing strong passwords (2 posts)

    I do the Force Strong Passwords plugin (http://wordpress.org/plugins/force-strong-passwords/). I just read about WP 3.7 switching to zxcvbn. My plugin replicates the current password strength JS in PHP, in order to do server-side validation on the user edit screen, and force strong passwords to be used for users with "executive" capabilities.

    A quick look at the zxcvbn script tells me replicating this might be a tall order! I can't see any attempts to port it to PHP around. Are you aware of anything like this? Any plans to implement something to force strong passwords in your zxcvbn plugin?

    No plans to do that, no. And yes, porting that would be very difficult indeed. :)
