Introduction

The US National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) released updated guidance regarding authentication systems in 2017, which includes new recommendations for password complexity and non-password authentication systems. This document reviews the NIST guidelines and offers practical guidelines to IT organizations and (separately) to application developers.

Password guidelines are a subset of NIST Special Publication 800-63 (Revision 3): Digital Identity Guidelines.
