i do not know much about SAS 70 II compliance
as per my knowledge and also i searched in internet i found that :
There is not much preference given to the password complexity for SAS 70 II compliance.

but the following can be followed

" Minimum of 8 characters
" A combination of upper and lower case characters
" A combination of alpha and numerical characters
" Restriction on repeating characters
" Ability to utilize special characters
