Readme for hpg-0.4

[back to package description]


The hpg utility creates passwords of different sizes, between 1 and 2^16. Please note that a length of < 8 is not very secure and should be avoided. That is why the default value is 16 if the command is called without any options. The default entropy contains [a-zA-Z0-9].

-l Use lower case.

-n Use numbers.

-s Use symbols.

-u Use upper case.

-x Use another length, as the default one.


Create a new random password:

$ hpg -lnsu -x 32
