NIST 800-63B: A Future without Password Change Cycles?

10/1/2019

Account passwords are required for security and accountability but are often despised by users that must remember them and network administrators that must reset them when users ultimately forget after a long weekend or a donut-infused sugar coma. While recommendations have changed slightly over the years, the base settings remain the same: sufficient length to prevent easy guessing or cracking (currently around 14 characters), complexity levels to discourage the use of names and dictionary words (3 of 4 types of characters – uppercase, lowercase, numbers, or special characters), and password change cycles to force new passwords that are fully up-to-date with policy settings and not used anywhere else (30 – 90 days, typically).

HP Server Red Screen of Death

9/3/2019

After an HVAC crew at a customer's DR site triggered multiple power outages, their recently repurposed ESX host (an HP ProLiant DL360 G9), which wasn't connected to a UPS at the time, would no longer pass POST. It would stop at 'Loading System Firmware Modules' before faulting and hitting the RSoD. After trying multiple options we thought the power surges/outages might've caused a hardware failure, but the errors from the RSoD didn't seem to indicate this to be the case. I found a related article (https://support.hpe.com/hpsc/doc/public/display?docId=mmr_kc-0128466) that is geared toward issues relating to BL460c's not being able to POST after firmware upgrades, and decided it was worth a shot before going down the hardware replacement route.
