Enforcing Minimum Password Length on switches, routers, and FWs
Cisco sent a letter addressing the lack of ability in enforcing a minimum password length on IOS devices and ASAs. In the letter, Cisco states that "With the shipping versions of Cisco IOS as of the current date, the native capabilities allow for encrypting the password as well as specifying a minimum length."
In regards to specifying a minimum length, I believe Cisco is referring to Autosecure for routers. But I don't know of any way to set a minimum password length on switches, even though Cisco states that it is natively support by IOS. I also know of no way to do this with ASAs. I know we can enforce several policies with TACACS, but we're looking for device IOS capabilities.
I'd also like to know what is meant by a "shipping version" of IOS. I'd always thought that a device came with a base IOS with a base license.
