Password generator for desktops.
passcode is an application/library that can be used to generate highly-secure random password
for multiple sites based on a single master password and site/app-based keywords. This ensures that
each site uses a unique password and you cannot break another site’s password if one site’s password
passcode is based on https://github.com/jcoglan/vault library which offers a similar solution.
passcode is a simple password manager. Given a passphrase and the name of a service, it returns a
strong password for that service. You only need to remember your passphrase, which you do not give
to anyone, and
passcode will give a different password for every service you use. The passphrase
can be any text you like.
Given the same passphrase and service name, the program will generate the same result every time, so you can use it to look up those impossible-to-remember passwords when you need them.
According to Dropbox’s zxcvbn password strength measure, if your dictionary English password takes about a second to crack, those generated by vault take over a million times the age of the observable universe to crack by brute force.
