Every entry to this page (or refresh) will cause it to generate a new Random Password from the RidgeStar random password generation routine. For this particular trip through the page the random password generated is:

Pf5k2hW6

This password :

  1. is 8 characters, numeric digits and/or special characters long
  2. does not generate a word or sequence present in a conventional dictionary
  3. does not contain the frequently confused letters (O,L) and numbers (0,1)
  4. has a Password Strength of 78

The intent is to be capable of generating a usable password in a random fashion that has a very high potential for being secure, is difficult to guess, and makes life very difficult for the commonly available "password cracking" tools.

Of course, it's always a tradeoff between security and ease of use....randomly generated passwords are quite secure, but....as you can see by hitting Refresh, they may be a bit difficult to remember.
