Contain at least one character from at least three of the following sets:
-Uppercase letters (A-Z)
-Lowercase letters (a-z)
-Numerals (0-9)
-Special characters such as ()~`#$*&@^ (do not use single quote, double quote, space bar, semi colon).

User created passwords expire after 126 days and will then need to be renewed.
Temporary passwords expire in 10 days after it has been requested from the 'forgotten your password' link.
There have been no changes to username or security answer formats.
