password ageing

password ageing

A security measure in which IT passwords expire after a certain pre-set period. Ageing is used in information systems for which multiple users log into the same PC over extended periods of time as a way of preventing unauthorised use by workers—e.g., junior doctors—whose need for access has ended.
