Use an RPG program to validate password

I work for the military. Security policies require checking of passwords against a dictionary -- password must not contain a valid word. I know there is a system value that allows removal of vowels. This is not acceptable to my employer.

I would like to use an RPG program to validate password against a dictionary if possible.

Try looking at the QINACTMSGQ system value. This sytem value allows you to specify the name of a message queue that can then be programmatically monitored. There's an example of this type of program in the Programming manual available from the IBM InfoCenter. The QINACTITV system value determines the number of minutes a job can sit "idle" before the action defined in the QINACTMSGQ system value is taken.
