    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
