super password

Function

The super password command sets an authentication password used to switch a user from a lower level to a higher level.

The undo super password command deletes an authentication password used to switch a user from a lower level to a higher level.

By default, no switching password is configured. You must set the authentication password before switching a user from a lower level to a higher level; otherwise, the switching fails.

Format

super password [ level user-level ] cipher

undo super password [ level user-level ]

Parameters

Usage Guidelines

Usage Scenario

If rights are reconfigured, you need to run the super command to switch a user from a lower level to a higher level. When a user is switched from a lower level to a higher level, the device authenticates the user identity to prevent unauthorized users from logging in to the device. Users at a higher level can run the super password command to set an authentication password used to switch a user from a lower level to a higher level, so that the device can authenticate the user identity.

Precautions

  • The target user level must be lower than or equal to the current user level.
  • The entered authentication password must meet the following requirements:
    • It is a string of 8 to 16 characters entered only in plain text.
    • It must be a combination of at least two of the following: uppercase letters A to Z, lowercase letters a to z, digits, and special characters.

      Special characters include ` ~ ! @ # $ % ^ & * ( ) - _ = + \ | [ { } ] ; : ' " , < . > / ? spaces.

  • The password entered in interactive mode is not displayed on the screen.

  • When setting the password in interactive mode, you can press CTRL+C to cancel the password setting.

  • If this command is run, passwords entered by users will be saved in cipher text in the configuration file. Therefore, a configured password cannot be retrieved from the system. Keep the password safe.

Example

# Set an authentication password used to switch a user from a lower level to level 5.

<Huawei> system-view
[Huawei] super password level 5 cipher
Enter Password(<8-16>):
Confirm password:
