OpenAM Custom Password Generator : I told you in a previous post about the OpenLDAP Password Policy Module which allows defining the password complexity rules by configuring an external file.  OpenAM-CPG is an OpenAM reset password plugin using the same configuration file rules to generate random passwords .

Lately, one of our clients having OpenLDAP wanted his OpenAM reset password module being able to generate passwords compatible with the Password Policy Module. Fortunately, OpenAM allows the administrator to define a custom class to generate random passwords. So all we had to do, is to develop a class that implements the  PasswordGenerator interface and reads the rules of generation from the OpenLDAP PPM configuration file ppm.conf.

You can find this OpenAM plugin project here :
