IssueDo I have to use a dictionary file for my ClearTrust password policy?
An invalid password was entered.  Reason: Password contains dictionary word.
ResolutionTo avoid this message, you can simply rename the existing ClearTrust dictionary and replace it with an empty one.

1.  Go into the following directory: c:\securant\secctrl\ct_root\dictionaries
2.  Rename the "words.txt" to "words.orig"
3.  Create a blank file in this directory and save it as words.txt.

Make sure there is nothing in this file and you will now be able to use common words as your password.
