> I'm researching potential problems and best practices for password policies that allow non-Latin-1 Unicode characters. My searching of the site showed me a general security considerations document (UTR #36) but nothing specific for password policies using Unicode.
> Can you recommend any documents to help me understand potential issues (if any) for password policies and validation methods that allow characters from more "exotic" portions of the Unicode space?
