This auth plugin combines the best of both email based signup and self enrolment keys into a streamlined process making it much faster for students to get into a course. For the student it saves around 9-10 clicks and avoids context switching between a browser and their email client where they can become easily become disengaged or run into issues if their email is unavailable.

A tool for enforcing various security standards and guidelines for passwords for Moodle. This plugin aims for compliance with the Australian Information Security Manual (currently May 2019), and above that, the NIST standards from the document 800-63B. Many of the controls are optional and user configurable, with the most safe values set by default, but allow for great customization for any configuration, while enforcing safe, sensible guidelines for passwords. This password checks also include securely testing for potentially compromised passwords using: https://haveibeenpwned.com/

tool_securityquestions
This plugin adds a framework for adding and enforcing security questions for users to perform a password reset. Currently it only operates on the Moodle Core 'Forgot Password' page, however it is easily extensible to other forms. NOTE: This plugin only has native compatability with Moodle 3.8. For Moodle 3.7, MDL-66173 must be cherry-picked to allow the plugin to interact with Moodle. See Readme for more detailed instructions

block_cqumymoodle
Allows staff and students to see enrolments they have in external systems (or other Moodle's). This was predominately created to allow links between archived and separated instances of Moodle, but keep the separation hidden to the users. Handy if you also have single-sign on between the systems, as it allows them to jump to external courses without having to login again.
