Description:

This software has been officially abandonded. The source tree I have locally is dramatically different than what I got here, other projects exist where it does a lot better job than I did. I did this project soley to learn to program in Qt and as such I didnt think this project would gain much popularity. Anyone is welcomed to contact me, I can give them the latest tarball as I do not wish to use cvs.

Any newer versions will be released and done using Cocoa (yes MacOS X) as I will no longer be using Linux as a desktop OS.

I think an important feature would be to generate pronouncable passwords, like the wallet application for Palm that I use (keyring - GPLed, check sf.net).

While I most often roll my own passwords (easy with a built-in cranium RNG ;-), a pronouncable secure password generator is handy to have around

I guess pronouncable in sense something like "lime$apple"? or more like "4agr8time"?

However, I dont know how secure that can be, I think a secure password thats easy to remember defeats the purpose. In my experience, using a root password similar to the ones generated from my app takes only a short amount of time to dedicate something totally nonesense into memory.

# apg -a0 -m8 -x8 -t -n 30

I'll see what we can do but won't make any promises if it can be incorporated in version 2.0.

Do you use APG or is your own algorithm?

What are you referring to? The alogrithm that outputs the random string? If so, yes it is my idea. It probably isn't the most clever of ideas, but it gets the job done :-).
