Practically all sites that provide personalized access, require that the users create an account and choose a password.

This way, the sites can identify and authenticate the users and only provide access to the accounts information and services to the users that really own the respective account.

One problem with this approach is that many users choose passwords that are easy to guess.

This class provides a solution to prevent that users choose passwords that are too easy to guess.

It computes a score for each password that the user chooses, so the site may ask the user to choose an harder to guess password if the score is too low.
