Strong Passwords Need Entropy v14.0 Updated

billon on 22 Apr 2018
  • 882KB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 21 Apr 2018
  • 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.

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.

Similar/alternative apps: gpg4usb, Secure Password Generator
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).

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

@CB13RY: from my quick checking, it seems that if you run the portable version once, it creates a 'Settings.ini' file in the application folder; you can edit this file with any text editor to change the paths included -- I was able to change from absolute path to filename only...

Midas on 2011-11-07 14:47

BTW, current version is now 2.3 -- please update.

I found an alternative freeware password generator at http://www.password-generator.com You may check if it suits your needs.

Falren on 2010-07-27 15:56

I normally use the 'Password Generator' feature (under Tools) of the KeePass 1.17 executable file on my thumbdrive to get passwords. 30,000 character limitation; Upper case; lower case; numbers; punctuation, brackets; even high ANSI characters. Mayne this will satisfy your complex password needs.
