Set a password regeneration mechanism


The system must provide a secure mechanism to regenerate a user's password.


Passwords are identity assertion elements that can be easily lost or forgotten. Additionally, they can be leaked as a result of a user's actions or a breach in the system. Thus, systems should have a secure mechanism that allows users to generate a new password in either of these scenarios. Furthermore, none of these mechanisms should send a recovery secret in plain text nor should they reveal the current password.
