Description (partial)

SNMPv3 auth and priv passwords are rejected if they contain too many sequentially incrementing or decrementing characters.

The simplicistic/systematic check fails if a password has too many consecutively incrementing or decrementing characters.  For example, the string "12345" has four such characters, and the string "ZYXW" has three.  If the total number of such characters exceeds a certain limit (typically more than around 4-6 such occurrences), the simplicity check will fail.
