      For a user account in system, we can set password age for an additional security.

      Proposed system will start suggesting to user to reset his password few days before password expiration. Then Once password expired, system will enforce him to reset his password before processing further.

          • - It will defined in propriety file so that admin can control it.
        • Number of days before when password expiration alert display at user's screen.
          • - It will defined in propriety file so that admin can control it.
      • How should it processed -
        • After user logged-in, display password expiration notification message to user if his password will expire in comming days.
        • After user logged-in, display change password screen, when password is expired. i.e. The difference in days since last time password updated is exceed to number of days specified in system policies. Enforce user to reset his password.
