Detailed information for the notes.ini Keyword: 

IDVault_Max_Auth _Failure_Cache_Size

Short Description: The size allowed for the bad password cache.


The size allowed for the bad password cache. When a user enters a bad password a bad password entry is made in a cache. The cache is cleared daily. If the limit is reached an error is logged suggesting that too many people have entered bad passwords and the administrator should check the log for an attack.

For example, a company's ID vault holds a very large number of ID files and people often legitimately forget their passwords, so the company uses the following setting to increase the value to 1000:

_Failure_Cache_Size = 1000

Default value:
Default value is 500 bad passwords.

IDVault_Max_Auth _Failure_Cache_Size=number

IDVault_Max_Auth _Failure_Cache_Size=500

UI equivalent:
There is no kown UI setting for this notes.ini variable. But you can specify this setting in the notes.ini settings tab of the configuration settings document.
