When you remember the attribute name.  The default should be easily
readable.  There should also be a way for a program or shell script to
get the information easily.

Last login date/time and location, failed login date/time and
location.  This should be able to be updated without one user's update
locking out another login.  Aix's /etc/security is an exmple of how
not to do it.  It should be possible to make /etc/passwd and
/etc/shadow immutable or stored on read-only media.
