fighting the lack of good ideas

on entropy, password/passphrase complexity, and if you’ve been part of a data breach (spoiler alert: you have)

I wrote an article on passwords, passphrases, entropy, and data breaches for my employer’s blog:

new service – free, secure password generation

Today, I am formally announcing a brand-new service / website for secure password generation.

Go visit

Get yourself random passwords of commonly-required lengths and complexities*.

Password Varieties:

  • 4 of 4
  • upper & lower alphanumeric
  • lower alphanumeric

Lengths generated: 12, 16, & 24 characters

Visit the GitHub project page ..

.. if you want to run the site on your own server.

You can view the source “live” ..

.. if you’d like to see how it works without visiting GitHub – and verify nothing is saved anywhere by the code: it’s just a script with no filesystem / database access.

It’s fast ..

.. load times tend to be under 0.15 seconds!

It will always be linked from my Projects page, and from the ‘External’ links menu on this blog.

*Also findable at – same server, same code
