About Cryptnos

Cryptnos is a multi-platform, Open Source application for generating strong, pseudo-random passwords using cryptographic hashes. It combines a unique "site token" such as a website domain name with a master password and runs this data through a cryptographic hash algorithm to produce a password that is unique, lengthy, seemingly random yet completely repeatable. Unlike similar products, however, it is exceedingly flexible. It is not a browser plugin, so it can be used with other applications outside the Web. It provides unparalleled versatility by letting you specify the cryptographic hash to use, how many iterations of the hash to perform, what characters to include, and how long the final password should be. Best of all, it is exceedingly secure. Your master and generated passwords are NEVER stored, and the parameters to recreate your passwords are stored in an encrypted form.

This project relates to the Google AndroidTM version. For the Microsoft Windows (.NET 2.0) version, please visit its GitHub project page. Please visit the official Cryptnos site for FAQs, news, tips, and additional information.
