Chapter 13. Security Basics > Authentication

13.2. Authentication

These authentication-related security features provide additional protection for your computer while still allowing easy and secure verification for authorized users.

13.2.1. Long Passwords

Panther supports account passwords of virtually unlimited length. In practice, however, you shouldn't set a password that's longer than you're willing to type (most authentication windows don't accept pasted text). Also, command-line utilities can have password length limits of their own. For example, the sudo utility doesn't accept passwords longer than 256 characters.
