Acme::CPANModules::RandomPassword - Generating random passwords

VERSION

This document describes version 0.001 of Acme::CPANModules::RandomPassword (from Perl distribution Acme-CPANModules-RandomPassword), released on 2021-05-26.

DESCRIPTION

Generating

App::genpw can generate passwords with patterns and wordlists. It loads secure random number generator if available. By default it generates 12-20 character-long passwords comprising of ASCII letters and digits. There are several variants which are basically wrappers for convenience: App::genpw::base64, App::genpw::base58, App::genpw::base56, App::genpw::wordlist (use words from wordlists), App::genpw::ind (use Indonesian words).

Crypt::GeneratePassword creates secure random pronounceable passwords. It provides function word() which generates a sequence of letters with vocals in between consonants so the word is still pronounceable, even though it's a nonsense word. It also provides chars() which produces a sequence of random letters, digits, and some symbols. It still uses rand() by default which is not cryptographically secure.

Crypt::RandPasswd implements the old FIPS 181 (1993, withdrawn 2015) standard to generate pronounceable password, which is no longer recommended.

Crypt::PassGen, yet another module to create random words that look like real words. It does not use a secure random number generator by default.
