Please refer the below listed defect.

CSCto72918    ACS 5.2 does not support Unicode characters in AAA client shared secret

Verified Comments:

1. Installed 5.3 Build 23

2. Create a AAA client Under Network Resources   >Network Devices and AAA Clients

3. Given the shared secret with some Unicode characters.

4. Thrown error as "Shared secret should contain only printable characters"

Hence the bug is verified

I did test the same on ACS 5.3 with (") in the shared secret and this is what I saw.

Thanks for that.

It doesn't even alow to input (") or (') into shared secret field.  These two are classified as printable characters?

Regards
