  • Should be at least six (6) characters long.
  • Contain characters from three of the following four categories:
    • English uppercase characters (A through Z)
    • English lowercase characters (a through z)
    • Base 10 digits (0 through 9)
    • Non-alphabetic characters (for example, !, $, #, %)

Users of TMCM with hotfix 3259 already have this feature. To enable the password complexity verification feature, do the following:

  1. Stop the TMCM service.
  2. Make a backup of the systemconfiguration.xml file, located in ..\Trend Micro\Control Manager.
  3. Open the SystemConfiguration.xml file using a text editor.
  4. Locate or add the "m_strIsCheckPwdComplexity" key and set its value to "1".
     
    To disable the feature, set "m_strIsCheckPwdComplexity" to "0" (zero).
  5. Save the changes, then close the file.
  6. Restart the TMCM service.
