    Well the idea is good but I certainly would not take some password that was generated by a website. Especially considering the following " snoop-proof and proxy-proof high-security SSL connection". That is a pretty bold statement. All in all it probably really is not that bad.
    To be successful here you should read all of the following.

    Linkage removed, it did kind of imply an endorsement which wasn't my intention. The link was simply for exemplar purposes (i.e.: "see like this...."), I didn't actually use one from Mr. Gibson's site.
    I'm a compulsive post editor, you might wanna wait until my post has been online for 5-10 mins before quoting it as it will likely change.

    I know I seem harsh in some of my replies. SORRY! But if you're doing something illegal or posting something that seems to be obvious BS I'm going to call you on it.

    Okay, I'll bite. Why not? It's generating a fairly random string of characters.
    Of course, if you really wanted to have some fun, go to Wal-Mart late at night and ask the greeter if they could help you find trashbags, roll of carpet, rope, quicklime, clorox and a shovel. See if they give you any strange looks. --Streaker69

    If you're super-duper paranoid, here's some C code for generating a random WPA password.

    Copy the contents into a file called "pass.c", then run:

    Code:
    gcc pass.c -o pass
    Next just run it and it will give a password:
    Code:
    ./pass
    Here's the C code:

    Code:
    #include <stdlib.h>
    #include <time.h>
    #include <stdio.h>
    #include <assert.h>
    
    char charset[] =
    "abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz"
    "ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ"
    "0123456789";
    
    #define N_CHARS_IN_CHARSET (sizeof(charset) - 1)
    
    #define N_CHARS_IN_PWD 63
    
    int main(void)
    {
        srand(time(0));
    
        char pwd[N_CHARS_IN_PWD + 1];
    
        char *p;
    
        for (p = pwd; p != pwd+N_CHARS_IN_PWD; ++p)
        {
            int const val = rand() / (((double)RAND_MAX + 1)/ N_CHARS_IN_CHARSET);
            assert(val < N_CHARS_IN_CHARSET);
            *p = charset[val];
        }
    
        *p = '\0';
    
        puts(pwd);
    
        return 0;
    }
    Ask questions on the open forums, that way everybody benefits from the solution, and everybody can be corrected when they make mistakes. Don't send me private messages asking questions that should be asked on the open forums, I won't respond. I decline all "Friend Requests".

    Just so I'm clear answer #1 would be (95^8)+(95^9)+(95^10)+ ... +(95^63) correct?

    Once my quantum CPU is complete, all you're passwords belong to mine.

    You'll never be able to complete it because you'll with each iteration of the quantum cycle the end result will change, that and you'll never fit Schrödinger's cat inside the computer.
    A third party security audit is the IT equivalent of a colonoscopy. It's long, intrusive, very uncomfortable, and when it's done, you'll have seen things you really didn't want to see, and you'll never forget that you've had one.

    Man, if that ain't a grammatical train wreck, I don't know what is.

    Correct, on Earth. Oh, streaker69 the cat "may" and "may not" be in the computer already.

    95^63 for a 63 char password

    eg 10 char password
    59873693923837890625 keys
    4000 k/s = 475949566 years
