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

             Summary: Kerberos: Password generator needs to generate passwords based on a
pattern to satisfy password policy
                 Key: AMBARI-10847
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/AMBARI-10847
             Project: Ambari
          Issue Type: Task
          Components: ambari-server
    Affects Versions: 2.0.0
            Reporter: Robert Levas
            Assignee: Robert Levas
             Fix For: 2.1.0


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. 

Within the KDC, there may be a policy in place requiring a certain characteristics for the
password. By creating a password consisting if 18 characters pulled randomly from {{abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyzABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ1234567890?.!$%^*()-_+=~}},
there is no guarantee that any specific policy will be met.
