I just published passphraseme to PyPI. It's a simple cryptographically secure script to generate high entropy passphrases using EFF's wordlists. Try it out with:

pip3 install passphraseme

Here's the source code: github.com/micahflee/passphras

· Web · 5 · 35 · 34

@micahflee I made this script for the same purpose: gitlab.com/snippets/1757999

But it uses ispell word lists :P

@micahflee Great tool! But your password strength calculation is a bit weird. I don't think anyone reading this is worried about an attacker who can spend 1 billion per day to crack a single password. If an attacker can do that, they can do lots of other things that are more effective.

@micahflee hrm, no way to specify a minimum character length.
i could take a poke at it if you don't wanna.

@micahflee You've got mimimum word count github.com/micahflee/passphras

but must password checkers have a minimum length, among other checks.

You could just add another word until len() >= min_len

it's just another argparse argument.

also avoid using sys.exit

just return from main

@Xyc0 I'm not sure a minimum character length is necessary. In my experience I only ever hit maximum character lengths when trying to use diceware passphrases places (and also, no uppercase and special chars)

"anime eligibly dismount detail imprecise" would be an accurate decription of high school for me. Unforunately, I could describe at least one night out as "cone trap cost runny smash grip alive", emphasis on #alive!

@micahflee ah man way to beat me to a project that was waaaay down my list
