F5 loadbalancer & Juniper has password expiry policy (disabling of accounts that are Inactive or too many failed attempts)

Q1:
Does F5 loadbalancer & Juniper firewall have password policy functionalities (eg:accounts
not used for more than 90days will get disabled & too many failed attempts to login will
render the account disabled for an hour)

Q2:
Can F5 & Juniper work with an external authentication service like TACACS or Radius?
Need something that will work with both F5 & Juniper

You are looking at local user database for F5 and Juniper as if they leverage b=on ext auth directory which is usually the case, then the account policy is based on the ext directory policy hence they cannot enforce or must not override it. So these F5 and Juniper boxes can support ext auth like RADIUS and TACACS

F5 TACACS / RADIUS - http://support.f5.com/kb/en-us/products/big-ip_ltm/manuals/product/ltm-implementations-11-1-0/34.html
Juniper TACACS - http://www.juniper.net/techpubs/en_US/junos14.1/topics/task/configuration/tacacs-authentication-configuring.html
Juniper RADIUS - http://www.juniper.net/techpubs/en_US/junos14.1/topics/task/configuration/radius-authentication-configuring.html

But if we are looking at local policy in those boxes, they have but it is based on max age rather than inactive state - no appliance can define the "inactive" definition as we expected such as no activities. If to customised that is either using some native script but i do not see it out of the box and support services is typically required.
