Password length has been found to be a primary factor in characterizing password strength. Passwords that are too short yield to brute force attacks as well as to dictionary attacks using words and commonly chosen passwords.
SolutionRun the following command to set the min-password-length setting.
Hostname>set password-controls min-password-length 14
Navigate to User Management > Password Policy
Ensure 'Minimum Password Length' is set to 14 or higher.
