The system must force the change of temporary passwords, which are generated by a third party, after their first use.
Temporary passwords are often harder to remember and shared over systems whose future integrity may not be guaranteed by the system that created them. Furthermore, there is no control over who has access to the secret besides the third party. Therefore, the passwords should be changed after their first use.
