hello,

Is it possible to customize the password complexity and enforce rules such as:
- prevent 3 or more repeating keys such as "aaa" or "@@@"
- prevent dictionary words
- prevent keyboard sequence keys such as: qwerty

our domain functional level is 2003.

If it's not natively possible, are there any 3rd party tools that can achieve that?

Thanks.

Native AD complexity rules cannot do this. You have to use a third party add on like the ones below. I have used the second one and it does what you are looking for.
