    Login-Password standards?

    Hi,

    I am testing login-password functionality.

    I want to know are there any standards for login and passwords with respect to white spaces, i.e. a space in the start or in the end of the Login name or a password.

    If Login name or a password accepts the space at the start or end then is it a bug? Are there any standards in this concern?

    Your suggestions are highly appreciated.

    Regards,
    Sejal

    What do either the explicit or implicit requirements for this functionality define for how this functionality should behave?

    During your talks with other QA engineers and those who wrote this code what was their response when you asked them how it should work?

    What "teams" i.e. Project management, Product Management, R&D, QA, etc have you met with to get their opinion on user and software reqs for this functionality?
    Reserve a few months every so often and preview retirement throughout your career. You won't regret that a 35 year career was reduced to 34 years to take vacations measured in months in order to remember what a stress and care-free life is all about.

    Books and hard work will get you anywhere you want to go.

    Re: Login-Password standards?

    check with your test case repository for the old projects or your company standard & procedure and security audit check list for the login page

    1.in general username should be allowed a space for between the words and leading and trailing space should be truncated in the coding (if its not truncate it should be a BUG)

    2.and password field should not allowed a space (if its allowed it should be a BUG)


    please correct , if i'm wrong

    I disagree with this part.

    We had a discussion about spaces within passwords a while back - http://www.sqaforums.com/showflat.ph...mp;Main=356033

    But I do agree that each company must decide their own requirements/standards for passwords.

    Re: Login-Password standards?

    I just have to say that it ticks me off when I "double click" to copy a password and it has that extra space that shows up when I paste it...and of course it's encrypted so I don't know/see if it's a space or not. So I have to count it or paste into notepad and check it. I wish it would just RTrim it. Also, it's passWORD, not passphrase or passwords, but I guess it comes down to the requirements though [img]/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]
