SV: Password complexity - improvement

Microsoft has source code available for creating your own version of
passfilt.dll. I will highly recommend doing this if you do not want
to purchase third-party software. Additionally you should implement
the various recommendations given by Microsoft and others concerning
issues like LM/NTLM hash storage, using LM/NTLMNTLMv2 across the
network, the saving of cached logon credentials on servers and
workstations etc.

Emne: Password complexity - improvement

Is there a way to improve the password complexity requirements in
Windows 2000/2003 servers

The default will enforce 3 of the following 4 properties - Uppercase,
smallercase, numbers, special-characters.

Is there a way to enforce all 4 properties. I donot want to install
third-party software

I have read about customising passfilt.dll . Is that recommended.
Does MS provide a customised passfilt.dll for download and install.

Are there any support issues if I go for something like this ?
