Seсurity Settings is explained in the example below:

Airtheme, img #01.4

CreativeBanks now has three security models. In addition to the standard (or Classic) security model, High and Proxy (Active Directory). High and Proxy security models meet all requirements of the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). For more detail on NIST specifications and standards, please visit

From the ‘Security Settings’ sub-tab, you can choose your preferred method of security using the Type pull-down menu at the top. Here is a brief overview of the three models:

Classic - A basic security model that allows for direct password access via email.

Airtheme, img #01.4

If users forget a password, they will be assigned a new one that will be sent within the text of an e-mail. While the Classic model offers password rotation functionality, it does not allow you to set requirements for password strength.

High - A high security model that allows for password resets via a web based interface.

Airtheme, img #01.4

If a password is forgotten, users will not be assigned a new password. Instead, they will receive an email prompting them to change it to something new via a web-based link. The administrator can set any requirements desired for password strength. Password rotation features are also included.

Proxy - A high security model that allows indirect access through the use of proxy users.

Airtheme, img #01.4

If you have a WebNative system bound to Active Directory, this security model offers a highly convenient solution.

Under this model, you can incorporate external users into your bank – such as clients, vendors and freelancers – without having to create individual users in Active Directory. How? When users register in CreativeBanks, they are assigned to a proxy user (with set permissions) that you have established. Once you have properly created this proxy user account in AD, WebNative will pick it up, and all logins still go through Active Directory.

Password Rotation Policy

The Password Rotation feature in Creative Banks 5 enables automated rotation of WebNative passwords for all users of your creative bank. Using the Password Rotation fields within the Security Model GUI, administrators can create a Password Rotation Policy that defines how passwords will be cycled.

Enable Password Rotation - Check to allow CB5 to rotate users passwords over time

Rotate Passwords Every (months) - Choose period in months between password rotation.

Exempted Usernames- Input one or several users names (comma separated) who's passwords will not be rotated

Only Rotate Enabled User Accounts - Check if you want to rotate only enabled users passwords.

NOTE: For Password Rotation Host cannot be blank. (Check Admin>>Sites>> Update>>Basic>>Host)

Access Control

Access control lets you limit user registration to specific domains (like, for example).

Limit Registration Email to Specific Domains - Input several domains names (comma separated). Only users with emails from those domains will be able to register

Email as Username - Check to force usage of email as username for registration and login

Unique email- Check to force usage of email as username for registration and login

Send password upon activation - Include new user password in activation email

Captcha - Check to show captcha on login

Forbid Registration - Check to forbid self registration

Forbid Password Restore - Check to forbid password restore

Auto Expire User Account (months) - Select time (after user registration) when user account will be automatically expired.

Lock user after - Select amount of unsuccessful login attempts after which the user will be locked

Unlock user after - Select amount of unsuccessful login attempts after which the user will be locked.

Webnative Access ( Classic and High only)

Default User WebNative Group - Select one or several webnative groups. Newly registered users will automatically become their members.

For the Classic and High security models, this field is used for ‘Default WebNative Group’ – that is, the group that users are assigned to when they register and are enabled for the bank. To put it another way, Classic/High security policies are group-based and Active Directory security policies are user-based.

Password Strength (High and Proxy only)

Password requirements are completely configurable by the administrator. If you want, you can stick to Native Security’s strict standards such as an 8-character minimum and a mix of upper and lower case letters and numbers, but you have the flexibility to set whatever requirements you want.

Minimum Length - Set minimum password length up to 10 symbols

Contains Lowercase - Set how many lowercase characters must be present in password

Contains Uppercase - Set how many uppercase characters must be present in password

Contains Digit - Set how many digits must be present in password

Not Equal Previous Password - Set acceptable password reuse age

Not Equal Username - Check to make sure that password does not match username

Proxy User Credentials (Proxy only)

Proxy Username - Input Webnative proxy user name. NOTE: start typing to see available suggestions

Proxy Password - Input Webnative proxy user password

NOTE: “Proxy Username”, “Proxy Password “ are required and cannot be blank.
