Mkstore Enforces Its Own Password Policy On Database Accounts (Doc ID 1294970.1)

Last updated on MARCH 10, 2019

Applies to:

Oracle Database - Enterprise Edition - Version 11.1.0.6 to 11.1.0.7 [Release 11.1]
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

Mkstore enforces it's own password policy when creating a credential.  This is happening only when mkstore prompts you for the password. If the password is provided directly then the password policy is not enforced. Because of this it is not possible to define securely the credentials.




$ mkstore -wrl . -create
Enter password:
Enter password again:
$
$ mkstore -wrl . -createCredential 11106 USER1 <PASSWORD>
Enter wallet password:
Create credential oracle.security.client.connect_string1
$ mkstore -wrl . -deleteCredential 11106
Enter wallet password: XXXXX
Delete credential
Delete 1



$ mkstore -wrl . -createCredential 11106 USER1
Your secret/Password is missing in the command line
Enter your secret/Password:
Invalid Password....
PASSWORD_POLICY : Passwords must have a minimum length of eight characters and
contain alphabetic characters combined with numbers or special characters.
