How many previous passwords can a gateway user use?
Preventing the use of previous password is an important security compliance requirement. This can be set under Settings->General-Authentication-> Password/Security Code Retries. If the retries is set to X, then X+1 number of previous passwords will not be allowed when setting a new password.
