Creating Passwords that don’t Require a Keyboard Epiphany using pwgen

Written by James McDonald

September 26, 2015

Just rediscovered pwgen which I had forgotten all about.

I’m still a fan of Secure Memorable Passwords for personal use though.

But pwgen is great if you are wanting to automate installations and require random mysql table prefixes:

# mysql table prefixes
pwgen -A 3 2 -1

# complex passwords 
pwgen -c -n -y -B 20 1

# db login details
pwgen -c -n 64 1
