Many applications impose rules for user passwords. Write a program that utilizes methods to check a user entered password ***** print out either "Valid" or "Invalid", based on the following rules:
• Password ***** be at least 5 characters long, but no longer than 8 characters (in other words, valid password ***** is in the range: 5<=len<=8)
• Password ***** consists of only letters (upper or lower case, or some combination of upper and lower), digits, and special characters from the following set: [email protected]#$%^&* (note: not every special character and punctuation mark is in this set. These characters correspond to Shift+1 through Shift+8 on the keyboard)
• Password ***** contain at least one digit, at least one letter, and at least one special character from the set defined in the point above.
Requirement: your program must include methods to perform these checks. Programs that do not use methods will not receive credit even if they function correctly.
Input: Prompt the user to enter a password.
Output: If the password ***** one or more of the rules, print out "Invalid", if it does not, print out "Valid".
Sample 1:
Please enter a password: A!2g
Invalid
Sample 2:
Please enter a password: A!2gt9
Valid
Sample 3:
Please enter a password: mnkys5
Invalid
Sample 4:
Please enter a password: mnkys5&
Valid
2) Create a program that generates a random password ***** user-defined length. For the purposes of this problem, we will assume that any character that corresponds to ASCII (decimal) values in the range 33-126 is a valid password ***** Hint: use the integer-character correspondence (generate random integers between 33 and 126, then convert them to characters).
Requirement: your program must include a method that generates and returns one random character. This method should be called some (user-specified) number of times by a loop that will use the returned characters to "build" the password ***** Programs that do not include this method will not receive credit even if they function correctly.
Input: Prompt the user to enter the length of the password ***** is to be generated by your program.
Output: A randomly-generated password ***** user-specified length.
Sample 1:
Please enter password *****: 3
Password: h3*
Sample 2:
Please enter password *****: 8
Password: [email protected])w+
3) Write a method that displays an n-by-n matrix using the following header: public static void printMatrix(int n)
Each element in the matrix is either a 0 or a 1, generated randomly. Write a test program that prompts the user to enter n and displays an n-by-n matrix of zeroes and ones.
Requirement: Your program must includ the method defined above. Programs that do not include it will not receive credit, even if they function correctly.
Sample run:
Enter n: 3
0 1 0
0 0 0
1 0 1
