vMware VM BIOS Password Complexity

Hello, Im on an internal audit and one of the point that they mark to me is that i have to secure the bios access with a 12 characters lenght, but when im on the bios I only can  use 8 characters. Is there any way to change that setting or is only  8 characters option?

hope you can help me thankyou.

The BIOS password is limited to 8 characters in length.  That limit is not configurable.
