What is it

The Stanford password policy is a dynamic password policy that encourages the use of easy to remember, yet secure passphrases instead of hard to remember passwords.


Using the dotnet-cli

dotnet add package StanfordPasswordPolicy

or with the nuget package manager console:

Install-Package StanfordPasswordPolicy


services.AddIdentity<AppUser, IdentityRole>(opt =>
            // If you don't want Identity's defaults to interfere with your new policy
            opt.Password = StanfordPasswordValidatorBase.NoDefaultPasswordOptions;
