    Good Afternoon all!

    Here's my dilemma, my brother is an atty., specializing in data security... On the Windows side.

    He's recently been hired by a client who is all Mac, all the time. What he wants the client to have is the following:

    1. I need them to have the ability to force the users to change their passwords every 60 or 90 days.
    2. I need them to have the ability for force complex passwords.
    3. I need them to have the ability to full disk encrypt their hard disks.

    I've check the App store and nothing there seems to be able to do that. There's quite a few apps on the Windows side for this type of issue.

    Is there a way to do this in Lion? What is/are the best App(s) for this ?

    Thanks in advance

    By the way, I'm aware that File Vault will take care of the encryption issue. The forced Password change is my obstacle right now.

    This functionality comes as part of OS X Server.

    They are going to need to set up a dedicated machine as the server, configure all machines on the network to use it for authentication, and configure it to have the appropriate password policies.

    Spidey!!!
