Strong Passwords Need Entropy v12.0

  • Released on 3 Feb 2017
  • Suggested by Midas

Strong Passwords Need Entropy is entropy calculator, password's strength and survivability checker and a strong password generator. The program analyzes your password and displays statistics about its length, character frequency, symbols, lowercase+uppercase letters, and digits. Based on this information, it calculates the password entropy, or the number of trials needed to find it and the time to crack the password.

Note that this analysis doesn't take into account "dictionary attacks" or use of words. For example, "ambassadorconjure" is long but not necessarily hard for a computer to guess.

This is an interesting application. Is there a way to run a list of passwords and get an output file of passwords and evaluations? If not here, can anyone recommend a portable app that does this?

br3: I haven't seen one that evaluates passwords in batches. I'd reach out to the developer on that point.

PWGen v2.9.0

billon on 10 Sep 2016
  • 3MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 9 Sep 2016
  • Suggested by I am Baas

PWGen provides a variety of security tools including a strong random password and data file generator, master password tool, and a text encryption tool.

  • Random number generator - the program can create lists of random characters or pass-phrases from word lists and uses mouse/keyboard activity to gather more entropy. The program includes lots of features to make these passwords easy and conform to any security standard.

  • Master password - lets you create strong passwords using two words, usually a single password with it's destination, creating strong passwords for every site ("email" is unique from "network"). It's an easy way to avoid writing down your passwords but always having them available.

  • Text encryption - draws from any application that supports a text copy/paste to encode (using the cliboard).
For both encryption and password generation, the program uses an open, standard algorithm (AES 256).

Languages (additional) are downloadable from the website.

What's new? New features:
  • New option "Specify length" for the "Include words" setting, which allows selecting passphrases with a certain length or length range; if enabled, only passphrases with lengths in the specified range will be displayed or added to the password list.
  • Check on start-up if an instance of PWGen is already running; if so, the user is asked to close the instance before starting a new one.
  • New option "Change font" in the context menu of the "Quick help" window.
Changes & improvements:
  • Changed hot keys for profiles (via main menu: File > Profile) from <Ctrl>+<Alt>+... to <Alt>+<Shift>+... in order to avoid ambiguities with the <AltGr> key in Windows, which is frequently used to access special characters on non-English keyboard layouts (<Ctrl>+<Alt> = <AltGr>).
Fixes:
  • Password option "Include at least one lower-case letter" did not work for phonetic passwords with mixed-case letters ("<phoneticx>" character set) (setting was ignored).

@webfork
Why was Gaijin.at Password Generator removed from the database? I have just tested it and it seems to be really portable.

Password Generator v3.5

Midas on 4 Nov 2015
  • 507KB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 28 Apr 2014
  • Suggested by Gaijin

Password Generator can create secure and easy to read and remember passwords by using vowels and consonants, as well as separate syllables. The program can quickly generate passwords based on user input or from other specialized password templates, including WEP and WPA2 keys for Wireless LAN. Generates 1,000 passwords at once and save them to a plain text file, and can analyze the relative security of a given password.

Passwords for UNIX, PHP and .HTACCESS (DES, MD5 and SHA1) can be created, including a DES salt.

What's new?
  • At the calculation of the DES-value of a password now an optional Salt-value can be specified.
  • A language file for Greek was added.
  • Several placeholders could be used now, which are replaced before the password creation. For example, the current second or the day of the year flow into a password.
  • In the settings the guidelines for the password check can be adjusted.
  • The default language was changed from German to English. This also applies to missing translations in other languages.
  • Various changes to the user interface.

Default language is English (see changelog).
You can delete step 3 of how to extract.

German seems to still be the default.
