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.
