CryptNET Password Candidate Generator

CryptNET Passgen (passgen) is a password generator. It generates a list of password candidates for the user to choose from by mapping operating system sources of pseudo-randomness into printable character arrays using a mod operation. A number of available command line options gives it a great deal of flexibility. It is capable of generating passwords composed of printable characters, alphanumeric characters, alphabetic characters, or only numeric characters.
