Strong Passwords generated from Pseudo Random Number Generator (PRNG) algorithms that uses a
random seed (the starting number of the algorithm) will produce a very good password.
It is good in the sense that it will be difficult to guess at and could only be cracked using a brute force algorithm which is a program that attempts all possible combinations.
In addition passwords are secure when the characters are selected from a large character set and are long.
Bottom line keep passwords random and long (at least 12 characters; not less than 8).
There are 4 Character Sets to choose from
Typewriter passwords help some people to memorize random passwords.
A typewriter password starting from the left has all the odd position characters selected from the left side of the keyboard while all the even position characters are selected from the right side of the keyboard.
A typewriter password starting from the right has all the odd position characters selected from the right side of the keyboard while all the even position characters are selected from the left side of the keyboard.

Thank-you and enjoy!
|How Does Our Program Work?|
GoodPassword.com uses 100 Pseudo Random Number Generators (PRNGs). The PRNG is based on Mersenne twister. Each PRNG is assigned to a user by the last 2 digits of their
IP number. Each PRNG is seeded by a set of random numbers received from random.org through a SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) connection, a web site
which generates random numbers from radio waves. The state of each PRNG is what we store in a SQL datatable
for 300 minutes. A crontab script (a scheduled task) runs every 30 minutes to check if any of the PRNG'S state is older than the 300 minutes. If so the state is deleted and thus leaving no trace of how any password was created.
|Leet Passwords and Password Recovery|
Leet Passwords are easy to remember acronym passwords generated by combining the first letter of each word, randomly changing the case, and replacing alphanumeric characters with their Leet (1337)1 equivalents, that is characters that look and/or sound the same ( Single ASCII 1337 Characters ). It is essential that the phrase selected is uncommon and known only to you.
By selecting the password recovery feature one will be able to retrieve their password with our password recovery tool in the event of forgetting or losing it. All that is required is the original phrase used to create it. How does this feature work? A cookie is created to remember the pattern taken by the password created from the phrase. Each character extracted from the phrase can have 4 possible states either as an upper case letter, a lower case letter, or up to 2 leet character substitutions. The following example illustrates this process.
A possible password for this is: MWd913Yo
The pattern for this password is: CCcLLlCl
Each time a phrase is created a new cookie is created to remember the password pattern. In instances of more than one password of the same length the password recovery program will display all possible passwords used.
Also note that each cookie is created to expire in 1 year unless you remove it. Further if one prefers not to use a cookie then simply record the password pattern which is displayed next to the password upon creation.
The Leet equivalents used are defined in the table below.
