A Random Password Generator

Version 1.6.1, 10 January 2006

RPG is a password generator that addresses the need for random passwords (and other random character strings) of specific lengths and constitutions. There are many password-generating utilities available, representing many different philosophies. RPG's design goal is to produce the most secure passwords constrained by the limitations — length and character set — imposed by the systems in which the passwords are to be used. RPG is most useful in concert with a keychain or password wallet.

RPG allows you to choose the length of the password, the characters to include in the password and characters to exclude from the password. It can display bullets (••••••••) instead of the password, in case somebody is looking over your shoulder. And it lets you copy the passwords to the clipboard.

RPG allows you to save a system's password parameters as a named schema and then switch among schemas by choosing from a list of names.

RPG can also generate multiple passwords simultaneously.

RPG is free for personal use. You do not have to pay anything for using it. Just try to be a good person; leave the world better than you found it. Specifically: work for justice, peace and sustainability; seek truth and seek to dispel ignorance and ideological dogmatism; recognize that the most fundamentally destabilizing influence in human society is the concentration of wealth and power; act out of love instead of fear.
