This servlet allows you to specify that passwords being changed via the Password Management Servlets must contain a special character. You have control over the number of special characters that are required and what a special character is defined as. The number of special characters is specified on the ISO object in eDirectory and the list of special characters is specified in a string in the iChainAppConfig.txt file.

NOTE: There is no flag to control whether or not the special character string is displayed. It is always displayed.
