  • Released on 5 Aug 2020
  • Suggested by I am Baas

Password Tech (formerly 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).

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

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

Sisma works well but is a bit too basic.

Strong Passwords Need Entropy v17.0

billon on 10 Jun 2019
  • 878KB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 7 Jun 2019
  • 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?

webfork on 2015-06-13 19:07

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