  • Random pronounceable passwords − – If we mix 26 lower case letters, as many upper case, ten digits and a dozen of other symbols, that’s 72 possible characters. Picking 8 of them at random gives 728 possible passwords, or about 49 bits of entropy. It is possible to calculate the exact entropy for a Markov chain, but the math is non-trivial. I guesstimated that this pseudo-japanese is about the same entropy as alternating 15-something consonants with 5 vowels. So for 14-characters passwords, that’s 157 × 57 possible passwords or about 43 bits of entropy; which I decided was good enough for me. Now grab the code and go change all those weak passwords!
  • Password Generator « Python recipes « ActiveState Code – A short, readable password generator that can be launched from the command line. Just launch it from the shell and it will print out an 8-character password. You can also specify the length and whether the password should be typed with alternating hands on a qwerty keyboard.

  • plugin:epub [DokuWiki] – epub is a plugin that will create EBooks from Dokuwiki pages that can be read in standard ebook readers. See ebook_readers below. EPUB is an open specification for digital books based on XML, CSS, and XHTML, and EPUB files can be read on portable e-ink devices, mobile phones, and desktop computers. The specification is overseen by the International Digital Publishing Forum. Unlike pdf files which have a standardized output, epub output is e-reader dependent, much like web pages, to which they are directly related. An epub page is XHTML with CSS styling. Ebooks can be collected in an e-reader's library of e-books and consulted off-line, making them always available
  • DIY USB password generator » Code and Life – Having done half a dozen V-USB tutorials I decided it’s time to whip up something cool. As USB keyboards were an area untouched, I decided to make a small USB HID keyboard device that types a password stored in EEPROM every time it’s attached. A new password can be generated just by tabbing CAPS LOCK a few times (4 times to start password regeneration and one tab for each password character generated, 10 is the default password length)
