Password security policy - complexity

As an WHM administrator, I would like to request the password strength configuration (for WHM, Cpanel, email accounts) to include:

  • setting password complexities. min. char Upper case, lower case, numbers and symbols.
  • comparing dictionary words against the password.
  • deny common simple password eg. password, password123, administrator.
  • restrict password containing parts of the email ID itself.

Currently, a simple password of "Password1234567" will score a strength of 83.

With the above password policy, coupled with cHULK Brute force protection & Host Access Control, the overall system will be more secured.
