  1. Forcing users to use uppercase, lowercase, special characters, digits expand the possible characters in the character set from 26 to 70+. This greatly increases the permutations for a password and requires a machine to cycle through that many more combinations … That is the benefit of making those characters required

    1. Hi Mark – no disagreement with you there. Complex passwords are a good thing. Our issue with CM is that it doesn’t validate the passwords up front for meeting the complexity requirements. It waits until the installers fail before letting you know, and that wastes effort and debugging time. I think there are some big improvements around password management that could be added to CM that get us both better passwords and ease of use.
