A pronounceable password generator plugin for KeePass.
Compared to traditional randomly generated passwords of the same length, pronounceable passwords are inherently weaker against brute force attacks. Using pronounceable passwords sacrifice some resistance against brute force attacks to reduce the risk of inadvertent password exposure. Whether this trade-off is worth it or not depends entirely on your use case.
When using this application I recommend generating considerably longer passwords to make any brute force attack as difficult as possible. This application uses FIPS-181 for generating passwords and it is particularly vulnerable to brute force attacks that are targeted specifically towards the algorithm. I added modifications to the implementation (such as allowing the insertion of random numbers or symbols between syllables) with the intention of protecting against a targeted attack, but I cannot make any supported claims as to its effectiveness.
Missed this in Keepass. Thank you!
Makes it much easier to remember passwords while still keeping a high level of password safety
good, but not easy to use
Good concept, for times when you want passwords that for some reason you still have to memorize (at least long enough to type them in) rather than just automagically send to the login page from the database. My only cavil is that I'm not sure it adds much that you can't get by using the existing password generator with a custom pattern to alternate consonants and vowels. (I use cvcvc..., with c and q excluded to insure that a "k" sound in a pronounceable "word" corresponds to "k".)
thanks man, great soft!
