Passphrase Generators


Since passphrases are more secure than passwords, I have started using them for different sites when I can. A lot of people found out about them from a comic at XKCD. Here is a list of passphrase generators that I use, and some that I have come across:

If a site still requires you to use a 54d_Tr0m8on3 (“sad trombone”) password, try Steve Gibson’s Ultra High Security Password Generator.

You could also create a password on Linux or cygwin on the command line. Here is a command that will create a 16-character random string with upper- and lower-case letters, numbers, and the characters “_”, “+” and “-“:

Put that in your .bashrc file (command based on information here, here and here).

You’re welcome.
