Generate random passwords via a perl script
Authored by: foilpan on Mar 02, '06 08:19:07AM
like the previous response, i use this:
alias makepass="/usr/bin/openssl rand -base64 15"
in my .bashrc to do the same thing. and for semi-secure, phonetic passwords, i use a python script my brother wrote. it's not as secure, but it produces output from a word or phrase you enter, so if you need to remember the password, you can just pass it the same input again. diff'rent strokes...
