  • Fun password generator


    Xyzzy is a pronounceable password generator. It is useful for those of us that find themselves bored with creating new passwords on a regular basis.

    The reasons to use a pronounceable password generator such as xyzzy are simply because passwords based on dictionary words are easy to ***** by brute force methods, and passwords which are hard to remember usually need to be written down which makes them vulnerable to being found by prying eyes.

    The passwords generated by xyzzy are easy to remember because they are pronounceable (usually) and are more secure because they are not dictionary words. Occasionally one will slip through, but this is very rare (usually about 1 in every 1000).

    The algorithm used to create the passwords is based on work of several people. In simple terms, it uses the statistics of how often one letter appears next to another and generates passwords based on these trends. For example, if a password contains the letter 'Q', then it is very likely that it will also contain a 'U' right beside it, because this is almost always the case in real words.

    For added fun, try to think of definitions for the words that xyzzy generates.
