From my experience at work we have a few systems that do not allow a user to create their own password. The passwords are always generated given a certain complexity requirement.

We already have a password generation, hence I suggest we should apply it to the registration form, allowing a registering member to see the generated password (print it, save it or whatever) but not be allowed to input anything by themselves.

In order to facilitate storage of password I would recommend, or , as examples.

Password reset works as usual of course.

We can implement is as optional to restrict passwords for stronger protections. I do not want us to force everyone to have this.
