Fix Recommendation

Configure AAA Services to enforce password complexity by requiring that at least one upper-case character be used. This includes randomly assigned passwords, shared secrets, and pre-shared keys.

Check Contents

If AAA Services rely on directory services for user account management, this is not applicable and the connected directory services must perform this function.

Where passwords (to include randomly assigned passwords, shared secrets, and pre-shared keys) are used, verify AAA Services are configured to enforce password complexity by requiring that at least one upper-case character be used. This requirement may be verified by demonstration or configuration review.

If AAA Services are not configured to require that at least one upper-case character be used, this is a finding.
