Administrator account tab
In this screen, authentication data can be defined for the administrator account.
- The default password of the “admin” user (super administrator) must be changed the very first time the product is used.
- To define an ASCII pre-shared key that is sufficiently secure, you must follow the same rules for user passwords set out in the section Welcome, under the section User awareness, sub-section User password management.
|Old password||Enter the current password of the admin account so that you can change it.|
|New password||Enter the new password for the admin account. For the list of allowed and prohibited characters, refer to the section Allowed names.|
|Confirm password||Confirm the password of the admin account that you have just entered in the previous field|
|Password strength||This progress bar indicates your password’s level of security: “Very Weak”, “Weak”, “Medium”, “Good” or “Excellent”.
You are strongly advised to use uppercase letters and special characters.
Stormshield Network uses asymmetric encryption, i.e., it uses a key pair consisting of a public key to encrypt data, and a private key for decryption. The advantage of using this system is that it removes the hassle of securing keys and allows electronic signatures.
