Passwords are the key to security. For obvious reasons, passwords need to be strong, long and secure. Sometimes generating complex and secure passwords can be a bit time taking.
Generate a Strong Password using Commandline
There are many ways in which we can generate a password. Follow these steps to generate a strong password that is also random.
1. Visit a password generating website of the kind of passwordsgenerator.net
2. Use the md5sum tool to generate a random password. We need to find something which is constantly changing so that we will get new md5sum whenever we do the command. So, I choose to check the md5sum of the current date, and it is always changing.
So use date |md5sum to generate a random password from command line.
And Voila! you’ve successfully generated a strong password.
