OWASP compliance

The Fluid Topics login mechanism complies with the following OWASP Secure Software Development Lifecycle Requirements:

  • #2.1.11 Users can take advantage of login tools like browser password helpers and external password managers, and they can paste text in the password field.
  • #2.1.12 Users can temporarily view their masked password by selecting the eye icon in the Password field.
  • #2.2.1 Fluid Topics blocks brute-force attacks by locking accounts for 10 minutes after 3 unsuccessful login attempts, logging locked accounts, displaying a generic HTTP 401 error message on the server side when invalid credentials are submitted, providing a more helpful error messages in the UI to legitimate users who enter an invalid password, and allowing users to bypass the anti-brute-force mechanism when using the Password recovery feature.
