The openSSL cookbook provides a deprecated
secure_password helper in the
Opscode::OpenSSL::Password class, which should not longer be used. This helper would generate a random password that would be used when a data bag or attribute was no present. The practice of generating passwords to be stored on the node is bad security as it exposes the password to anyone that can view the nodes, and deleting a node deletes the password. Passwords should be retrieved from a secure source for use in cookbooks.
::Chef::Recipe.send(:include, Opscode::OpenSSL::Password) basic_auth_password = secure_password
