You can now enforce password policies in your Amazon RDS for MySQL databases using the MySQL validate_password plugin. This improves the security of your databases by defining minimum password length, required characters, and other rules.

Password validation is available for RDS database instances running MySQL versions 5.6, 5.7, and 8.0. You configure the parameters in the DB parameter group used by the instance. For more information, see the Amazon RDS documentation.
