Evaluate a given security policy and practice (hands-on) implementing the needed administrative security controls.
this written assignment assume the following security policy has just
been adopted by your company and you as the network administrator are
responsible for implementing the “mechanism” to enforce this policy.
Statement: Passwords are the most frequently utilized form of
authentication for accessing a computing resource. Due to the widespread
use of weak passwords, the proliferation of automated password-cracking
programs, and the activity of malicious attackers, they are very often

maximize your learning with this written assignment, it is recommended
that you research how passwords standards can be enforced (your choice
of the target OS) and that you attempt to implement this policy on a
non-production system – preferably one that you have implemented for use
in this course.
In a two page (maximum) paper, delineate the
process you would adopt, specific to your chosen OS platform, to enable
enforcement of the password policy. Include screen shots of scripts
and/ or application settings that you utilized to accomplish this
