How would I make a code that would check the password for the following and add or subtract the following points :
- the amount of characters is equal to the first amount of points
- capital letters + 5 points
- lower case letters +5 points
- digits(1-9) + 5 points for each one
- special characters(!$%^&*()_-+=) + 5 points
- only capital letter -5 points
- only lowercase letters -5 points
- only digits -5 points
- only special characters -5
- if the password contains three consecutive letters based on the layout of the UK QWERTY keyboard -5 points for each set of three.
In addition I would also like to know how to generate a random password that follows the point scoring system above and has 8-12 letters.The password would have to be classified as strong to be shared with the user.
- 20+ is strong
- 0 or less is weak
- anything else is medium
