AIOS-14-000200 - The mobile operating system must be configured to not allow passwords that include more than two repeating or sequential characters.

Information

Password strength is a measure of the effectiveness of a password in resisting guessing and brute force attacks. Passwords that contain repeating or sequential characters are significantly easier to guess than those that do not contain repeating or sequential characters. Therefore, disallowing repeating or sequential characters increases password strength and decreases risk.
