Computer Science Password Validation Rules:

Passwords will be rejected if they: * Are less than 6 characters long or more than 8. * Do not contain at least one lower case character. (a-z) * Do not contain at least one upper case character. (A-Z) * Do not contain at least one numeric digit. (0-9) * Do not contain at least one special or punctuation character, such as $, @, #, ., /, !, for example. * Match anything in your UNIX account information, such as your login name or an item from your "finger" data entry. * Contain a word in the system's spelling dictionaries. Reversed dictionary words are also checked for. Dictionaries from multiple languages are used for this check! For example, the password theXyz would be rejected because it is contains the dictionary word "the". * Have 3 or more repeated characters - thus "aaa" would be rejected. As an example of a password that meets all of these rules, consider the word 'student' spelled "5Tud3n+".
