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

an.icanhazpw.info or 8an.icanhazpw.info: Returns an 8 character password generated only from Alphanumeric characters. No 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.
