Password generator

Master: > Site: >  

Just like Nic Wolff, I hate remembering passwords. Nic created a brilliant password generator which uses a master password, the site name (or domain name), and a bit of MD5 encryption - this produces a different password for each site, and it's impossible to reverse-engineer your original master password from it. Now, you only need one password, and no amount of embarrassing SQL hacks will worry you. Hurray.

Nick produced a bookmarklet to generate this password. Johannes la Poutré produced an excellent Greasemonkey script which almost automates the entire thing if you use Firefox. It's just brilliant.

Just above is the version I use, whenever I want a password. You can use it too - or, better, copy the JavaScript code on this page and stick it into your own website or intranet.
