Description: Align ARIN password policy with current NIST SP800-63 recommendations (published June 2017)

Executive summary at https://www.nist.gov/blogs/taking-measure/easy-ways-build-better-p5w0rd

TL;DR - a long passphrase with no special characters or capitalization is far more secure than a p4SSw0rD&!!
