Re: Banks? Security?
Bad enough that my bank STILL refuses to make passwords case sensitive, or allow "Special" characters.
That's a problem everywhere, and the sad thing is that I know why this is the case.
RACF has issues with non-alphanumeric characters due to ASCII/EBCDIC.
Many bank systems do RACF authentication. Therefore, bank password policies won't allow non-alphanumeric password.
Client-facing systems don't authenticate clients against RACF. Yet they're also saddled with the same password policies because having a single policy for everything is easier!
