I had the opportunity to help implement and integrate a strong password policy to the legacy web application developed using ASP technology. The solution I proposed was to use jQuery to display the password strength meter to help users create strong password. Then one of my colleagues had asked "Do we have to modify the client-side script, code behind and password policy page if the client decided to alter the password policy?" The answer is "no", thanks to jQuery, the client-side script and code behind can share the same XML file. The password policy information is stored to an XML file and the client-side script and code behind are using the information in the XML file to perform the password strength validation.

I found several fine jQuery plug-in to display the user's password strength but I prefer to have something somewhat similar to the ASP.NET AJAX PasswordStrength control. After spending some time doing research, I was able to find all the necessary resources and assemble the jQuery plug-in to achieve the goal. Listed below are the features of the plug-in and I have put together a demo, everyone are welcome to download it.
Display password strength indicator in text and progress bar meter.
The password policy, bar color and width are stored in the XML file and consume by the client-side and server side
Use XSLT to transform the password policy XML file into HTML.

Display Different Colors in the Progress Bar

This project consist of

• Default.aspx – sample code in ASP.NET c# with MasterPage
• PasswordPolicy.xml – contains password policy information
• Password.xslt – to transform PasswordPoclicy.xml file into HTML format
• jQuery.password-strength.js –this is the plug-in I have created
