Generate random passwords via a perl script
Authored by: barefootguru on Mar 02, '06 10:19:55AM

Another password generator is built-in to the GUI: when changing a user's password in System Preferences, or creating a new password in Keychain Access, there's a key icon next to the password field.

Clicking it brings up Password Assistant which can create memorable, random, FIPS-181, etc., passwords. It also gives an indication of how strong a password is (manual or random), and supplies a number of hints related to the password (appears in dictionary, username, etc.)
