HPG(1) - General Commands Manual

NAME

hpg - simple password generator

SYNOPSIS

hpg [-lnsu] [-x length]

DESCRIPTION

The hpg utility creates passwords of different sizes, between 1 and 2^16 signs. Please note that a lenght 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.

EXIT STATUS

The hpg utility exits 0 on success, and >0 if an error occurs.

EXAMPLES

Create a new random password:

$ hpg -lnsu -x 32
