Authentication 6

Temporary passwords must expire within a suitably short time period. Enforce the changing of temporary passwords on the next use - no user should be utilising a temporary password on a regular or ongoing basis.

How to play?

Sven can reuse a temporary password because the user does not have to change it on first use, or it has too long or no expiry, or it does not use an out-of-band delivery method (e.g. post, mobile app, SMS)
