Site of the Week: High Security Passwords

14 Feb

I usually post the site of the week on Friday but I will be out of town this weekend and thus unable to post site of the week at its normal time. Because I know the thousands of people that read this blog desperately want to see a site of the week and since I didn’t post one last week I will post it today.

This weeks site of the week is Ultra High Security Password Generator. This site is really pretty simple. It generates a pseudo-random 64 hex character string, a 63 ascii character string, and a 63 alpha-numeric string for use as passwords. 63-64 characters is a really long password to remember. If you can do it, go for it; if you can’t, just cut it down to 20-30 characters. It won’t be as secure but it will still take hours upon hours to brute force.

I just noticed today that this site is a product of the Gibson Research Center (I wonder if its hosted on a gibson? 😛 HACK THE PLANET!) as in Steve Gibson of Security Now. I haven’t actually listened to Security Now yet, but I may in the future. However Mr. Gibson has been on the Screen Savers back in the day and on TWIT several times.

Enjoy your internets and remember:
“Seldom do those who are silent make mistakes.” – from the Havamal.
