CryptNET: Password Generator

This project uses The Strong Distribution Model for security.


CryptNET Passgen (passgen) is a password generator. It generates a list of password candidates for the user to choose from by mapping operating system sources of pseudorandomness into printable character arrays using a mod operation.

It is capable of generating passwords composed of printable characters, alpha numeric characters, alphabetic characters, or numeric only characters.

By default, passgen generates 14 character passwords. With current grid and cluster computing technology, that is considered the minimum number of characters a password needs in order to be safe from a brute force or dictionay attack.
