I am facing a very odd issue, I have a script which prompt for the user password and checks if the password is complex or not depending on some criteria I have set. Below is the script block that i am using
$username = read-host "Please enter your username"
$password = read-host "Please enter the password you want to test" -AsSecureString
So i enter the password as –> powershell.com (just to test)
As per the criteria I get there is an upper case in the password.
But when I remove the -asSecureString parameter, and enter the same password. it seems to pass the check properly.
Does using -AsSecureString change anything while storing the password?
