Secure Password Creator

This converter requires the use of Javascript enabled and capable browsers. This script creates a relatively secure password for use on any password system, limited only to the restrictions of the system it will be used within. The definitions show the possible characters allowed for ultimate entry. Each set (there are 11 different sets plus an option for the 11th set to include the space character) is defined by the characters that will be allowed within the password on the target system, including only lower case, upper and lower case, numeric, other viable characters, and combinations; single and double quotes are not allowed on most systems so we do not allow them as viable characters. To create the password, place a definition character in the position of the password (manual entry box) that you wish to have a character from the appropriate set of characters appear. For instance, if you would like a 3 character password that is all numbers, the mask should be ddd. If you would like a 6 letter password with only lower case characters, the mask should be llllll, while the same length with upper or lower case characters should be qqqqqq. From the mask characters, the generator creates a random character password. This will generate passwords of up to 40 characters in length and will generate several possible for your selection from each mask. You may select one of the generated passwords, highlight it, and copy it to another application if you desire. You may also use one of the pre-designated password masks in the alternative entry box. When you click on the selection, it will appear in the manual entry box.

The most commonly used passwords are alphanumeric, including both upper and lower case letters, on most systems. Most systems limit the length of passwords to 8 characters, but there are cases of legal passwords with many more than that as legal. There are instances where some very high security systems include spaces (the character generated by the space bar) in a password. We are not using any of them in the pre-designated sets but you may include them by placing the s character where you want to POSSIBLY have a space. That position will be the characters from the Other Characters plus the space. The value will be chosen from that set randomly and it is POSSIBLE to have a space in that position. We suggest only one per password, not the leading or ending character. (While we provide the option, we do NOT suggest using spaces.) To clear the entries in the created password box and the mask box, click on Clear Values.
