susi import re strr = 'aAAAAk2sSh32dy' csrf_match = re.match(r'[a-zA-Z0-9]{8,}', strr) print(csrf_match) Not sure what csrf= is intended to do here. CSRF stands for Cross-Site Request Forgery. It's a type of attack where an attacker tricks a user into performing actions on a website that they didn't intend to perform.

re.match should be used more like a boolean conditional check. Uncomment the alternative value for strr to test for fail case . import re strr = 'aAAAAk2sSh32dy' #strr = '$#+;$#' if re.match(r'[a-zA-Z0-9]{8,}', strr): print('test passed') else: print('test failed')
