Password Modify Extended Operation Handler

The Password Modify Extended Operation Handler allows end users to change their own passwords, or administrators to reset user passwords.

The password modify extended operation is defined in RFC 3062. It includes the ability for users to provide their current password for further confirmation of their identity when changing the password, and it also includes the ability to generate a new password if the user does not provide one.
