Generate secure random character sequences, not inspired by XKCD

Project Description

# Simple-Passgen : A very simple script to generate cryptographically random passwords Simple-Passgen is a script that uses os.urandom() to generate crypotographically suitable random characters from the set of characters typable on a standard keyboard (a-z, A-Z, 0-9, and punctuation). For a complete listing refer to an ASCII or Unicode table, as this implementation uses precisely ASCII codes 33-126. This generates passwords with 6.554 bits of entropy per character. Some basic statistics are given about the password on each generation depending on the length settings chosen. ## Usage ` shell passgen [phrase length] `
