Merge pull request #1058 from greenqloud/pr/password_security

Shuffling the password to avoid having a subset of characters in fixed positions.Related to
CLOUDSTACK-9052.

I am shuffling the characters in the password, to avoid having a certain char type in fixed
positions. I modified the tests accordingly to only check that the different character types
are present.

I think it would be good to remove the hard requirement to have at least one of digits, upper-case,
and  lowercase chars, as it reduces the number of possible combinations passwords can take.
What do you think?

> Currently, any password generated by the PasswordGenerator that is more than three characters
long has a lower-case char, and an upper-case char, and a digit in fixed positions, which
reduces the randomness and makes it easier to crack.
