PasswordGenerator

Produce secure passwords using Mersenne Twister!

To-do

  1. Make it easier to use on Windows (?)

Tips

  1. Command-line flags can be combined.
    • With the exception of -n and -l
    • eg -maAs (remove meta-info, add lowercase letters, uppercase letters, and symbols)
  2. Piping output is a great way to avoid filling up your screen with text
    • eg ./passgen -m -n 60 > test.txt (put sixty 8-digit random numbers into a text file)
  3. Longer length passwords are generally more secure.
    • eg See below:
    ./passgen -maAs -n 20 -l 64
