xkcdpass - XKCD Style Password Generator
Generate passwords made up by four (or any other number of) random words from a word list (7776 common English words).
With the default of 4 words, there are 7776^4 = 3656158440062976 possible word combinations, which corresponds to about 51 bits of entropy. When using 6 words, the entropy is increased to about 77 bit.
Install via cargo...
$ cargo install xkcdpass
...or build locally.
$ cargo build --release
$ xkcdpass pleased excellence space strain $ xkcdpass -c 6 simplified far shade warranty carmen messages
By default, this program uses the "Long" wordlist by EFF: https://www.eff.org/deeplinks/2016/07/new-wordlists-random-passphrases
Alternatively, you can provide your own wordlist(s):
$ xkcdpass -w wordlist1.txt -w wordlist2.txt
When providing multiple wordlists, they are concatenated.
