-------------------------------------

             Summary: Kerberos: Password generator needs to generate passwords based on a
pattern
                 Key: AMBARI-10018
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/AMBARI-10018
             Project: Ambari
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: ambari-server
    Affects Versions: 2.0.0
            Reporter: Robert Levas
            Assignee: Robert Levas
             Fix For: 2.0.0


The password generator used to generate passwords for identities needs to generate passwords
based on a pattern rather than just a random sequence of characters. 

For the MIT KDC, this isn't an issue; however for an Active Directory, there may be a policy
in place requiring a certain characteristics for the password. By reating a password consisting
if 18 characters pulled randomly from {{abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyzABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ1234567890?.!$%^*()-_+=~}},
there is no guarantee that any specific policy will be met.
