    Does MyID have the ability to check for a weak PIN, such as consecutive characters (11111111) or predictable sequences (12345678)?  This applies to any credential where a PIN is being set at issuance, such as smart cards, tokens and virtual smart cards (VSC’s).


    MyID does not have any checking for weak PINs.  However, MyID can be configured, in the credential profile, to enforce a strong PIN. This can enforce combinations of numeric, alpha, case sensitive and special characters (&^%$£ etc).  Refer to the correct section of the Administration Guide for your version of MyID.  Typically titled ‘Managing Credential Profiles’.
