To reduce vulnerability of passwords to a dictionary attack, only strong passwords are accepted by Intel AMT devices.
The strong password must meet the following criteria:
Be at least eight characters long. Characters allowed are 7-bit ASCII characters in the values of 32-126 inclusive. The characters " ' , and : are not allowed.
Have at least one digit (Example: 0, 1, 2, ... 9).
Have at least one 7-bit ASCII non-alphanumeric character (Example: !, @, $).
Contain both upper and lower case Latin characters (Example: A, a, B, b).
Also, you are required to use strong passwords in the Symantec Management Console when you configure Out of Band Management Component.
