CompTIA Security+ Question E-72

A network administrator, Peter, arrives at his new job to find that none of the users have changed their network passwords since they were initially hired. Peter wants to have everyone change their passwords immediately. Which of the following policies should be enforced to initiate a password change?

A. Password expiration
B. Password reuse
C. Password recovery
D. Password disablement

Answer: A

The Maximum password age policy setting determines the number of days that a password can be used before the system requires the user to change it. The password expiration setting determines that a user will not be able to log into a system without changing their password after the maximum password age has been reached.
