Password Generator

This is an abstract object type that cannot be instantiated.

Password Generators are used by the password modify extended operation to construct a new password for the user.

The server allows any number of password validators to be defined. This can impose any kinds of restrictions on the characteristics of valid passwords. Therefore, it is not feasible for the server to attempt to generate a password on its own that will meet all the requirements of all the validators. The password generator makes it possible to provide custom logic for creating a new password.
