PassPhrase 1.2Ever have trouble coming up with a new password? PassPhrase helps you choose secure passwords and passphrases for logins, encrypted data, web sites, and so on.
Each time you tap 'Generate', seven items are randomly selected from a self-contained dictionary of over nine-thousand common words, numbers, abbreviations, and symbols. The selection is extremely random, using a strong random-number generator seeded by the exact timing and position of your stylus taps.
PassPhrase offers nearly 7 octillion possible seven-item sequences! (An 'octillion' is a 1 followed by 27 zeroes.)
For added security, working memory is scrubbed when PassPhrase exits; no trace of the selected phrase remains in your handheld's memory.
A good password for an online system is two unrelated words joined by a
symbol, for example:
To properly secure encrypted data a pass-phrase of four or more words is
recommended, for example:
PassPhrase is compatible with all versions of the Palm OS®.
PassPhrase was written entirely on-board a Palm Powered™ handheld using the Quartus Forth compiler.
