pwqgen — Generate quality controllable random passphrase
The pwqgen program generates a random passphrase using the libpasswdqc library. Strength of the generated passphrase depends on the amount of randomness read from /dev/urandom.
random=N (default: random=47) The size of randomly-generated passphrase in bits (24 to 85). config=FILE Load config FILE in the passwdqc.conf format. This file may define any options described in passwdqc.conf(5), but only the random and config options are honored by pwqgen. --version Output pwqgen program version and exit. -h, --help Output pwqgen help text and exit.
pwqgen exits with non-zero status when it encounters invalid config file, invalid option, invalid parameter value, when it fails to obtain enough randomness, and in any case when it fails to generate a passphrase.

The pam_passwdqc module was written for Openwall GNU/*/Linux by Solar Designer. The pwqgen program was originally written for ALT GNU/*/Linux by Dmitry V. Levin, indirectly reusing code from pam_passwdqc (via libpasswdqc). This manual page was written for Openwall GNU/*/Linux by Dmitry V. Levin.
