Empty/Blank Passwords

Tectia Server allows users with empty passwords to log in by password authentication method.

On Windows, local users with empty password can be restricted to log on from a physical console only by using the security policy “Accounts: Limit local account use of blank passwords to console logon only”. If this policy is enabled (as it is by default), users with empty password cannot log on to Tectia Server using password authentication. However, the same users can still log on to Tectia Server using other authentication methods that do not involve using the account's password, for example public key authentication.

[Note]Note

The policy “Accounts: Limit local account use of blank passwords to console logon only” does not apply to domain accounts.
