Automated Password Generator - Standalone version
DescriptionAPG (Automated Password Generator) is the tool set for random password generation. It generates some random words of required type and prints them to standard output. This binary package contains only the standalone version of apg. Advantages:
* Built-in ANSI X9.17 RNG (Random Number Generator)(CAST/SHA1)
* Built-in password quality checking system (now it has support for Bloom
filter for faster access)
* Two Password Generation Algorithms:
1. Pronounceable Password Generation Algorithm (according to NIST
2. Random Character Password Generation Algorithm with 35
configurable modes of operation
* Configurable password length parameters
* Configurable amount of generated passwords
* Ability to initialize RNG with user string
* Support for /dev/random
* Ability to crypt() generated passwords and print them as additional output.
* Special parameters to use APG in script
* Ability to log password generation requests for network version
* Ability to control APG service access using tcpd
* Ability to use password generation service from any type of box (Mac,
WinXX, etc.) that connected to network
* Ability to enforce remote users to use only allowed type of password
generationThe client/server version of apg has been deliberately omitted. Please note that there are security flaws in pronounceable password generation schemes (see Ganesan / Davis "A New Attack on Random Pronounceable Password Generators", in "Proceedings of the 17th National Computer Security Conference (NCSC), Oct. 11-14, 1994 (Volume 1)", http://csrc.nist.gov/publications/history/nissc/ 1994-17th-NCSC-proceedings-vol-1.pdf, pages 203-216) apg has not seen upstream attention since 2003, upstream is not answering e-mail, and the upstream web page does not look like it is in good working order. The Debian maintainer plans to discontinue apg maintenance as soon as an actually maintained software with a compariable feature set becomes available.
Upload new screenshots
Thanks for uploading more screenshots. Please note:
- Your screenshot should contain a typical scene when working with it.
- Take only a screenshot of the respective application and not of your whole desktop (unless the screenshot is meant for a window manager).
- Your screenshots must be in PNG format.
- You can upload multiple images at once.
- Your screenshot need to be approved by the moderators first. You will already see your screenshot but it will not be visible to others instantly. If moderators reject your upload you will get notified next time you visit this site (requires cookies).
- Images larger than 800x600 pixels will automatically be reduced. So don't try to capture too much detail in a screenshot. It may become unreadable. Shrink the applications window if possible.
- Screenshots are made public and can freely be used by anyone.
- Useful programs for making screenshots are shutter, ksnapshot (KDE), gimp, xwd or scrot. See the Debian wiki for more information on how to make screenshots under Debian.
- Please set your language to english so that everybody understands it. If you don't use english by default please start your application from a shell using after setting "export LANG=C".
