Type the password in.
The password for lights is stored in
lights.conf. If you copy the password to the name field in the conf file, the program will decrypt the password and show it in the username file.
The password for this challenge is stored in
vending-machine.json. In the lab, you can delete this config file and the program will ask you to create a new username/password. You can start with "AAAA" to see if anything looks similar to the encrypted password in the .json file
LVEdQPpBwr. Once you figure the first character of the password you proceed to the second character (ex. "CAAAA" if the first character was C). You will find the password is "CandyCane1".
