Generating Secure Passwords With pwgen


At my current place of employment we have a fairly strict password policy for everything, all passwords must be unique (so no single password used everywhere) and we use KeePass and KeePassX to manage them, so we can have fairly long passwords that aren’t immediately rememberable full of fun characters.

Generating the passwords is a dull process so we take the sting out of it using the pwgen utility!

My new website, shows how I'm making money online as well as what life can be like when you're not sat behind a desk and are free to make your own decisions!
