Secure Password Recovery for DNN/EVOQ

Improving the security of our customers DNN installations has always been of the utmost importance. This extension for those not able to upgrade to DNN 7.0.0 or later, provided a secure mechanism for requesting password resets. Rather than the default DNN based process in which the users passwords were emailed in plain-text, a token process was employed. Users are sent a reset link and after following the link they are able to reset their password. Links are valid for a user-configured amount of time helping to ensure that users information stays private at all times. Starting with DNN 7.0.0 the platform now employs a similar secure recovery mechanism.
