download ASP PAD XML program description for the current version of Password Generator.
Password Generator is free. Full source included. You may even include the source code, modified or unmodified in free/commercial open source/proprietary programs that you write and distribute. Non-military use only.
Unlike most other generators, passwords generated by my Applet are never sent over the net, where they could in theory be snooped on, particularly by an agency of the American government who have legal and mathematical abilities to crack pretty well anything they please. Passwords are generated in your machine and never leave your machine. Any password generator could in theory retain a copy of the password that it gave you and pass it on to the bad guys. You must trust the author. In the case of my Password generator, you can download the source, examine it for any back doors, or have a programmer friend do so, compile it yourself and run it offline.
