As I first announced on September 23, 2011, I have created a quick and easy way to generate random passwords. It is a website called icanhazpw.info that does one thing and one thing only. Generates random passwords. When you go to that site, the only thing it returns as a response is the generated password, so it’s easy to use it in scripts or with curl, wget, etc.
Instructions for use
Using your favorite method (browser, curl, wget, etc.), go to one of the sites listed below:
icanhazpw.info: Default site. Returns an 8 character password with a mixture of Alpha, Numbers and Special Characters
8.icanhazpw.info: An alias of the default site, returning an 8 character password consisting of Alpha, Numbers and Special Characters
12.icanhazpw.info: Returns a 12 character password consisting of Alpha, Numbers and Special Characters
16.icanhazpw.info: Returns a 16 character password consisting of Alpha, Numbers and Special Characters
More options could become available in the future, should the need arise.
