nasty - A tool which helps you to recover your GPG passphrase
nasty is a program that helps you to recover the passphrase of your PGP or GPG-key in case you forget or lost it.
-a x set minimum length of passphrase -b x set maximum length -m x set guessing mode: incremental: try them all random: try at random file: read phrases from file (use -i) -i x file to read the passphrases from -f x file to write the found passphrase to -c x... charset, one or more from the following: a: a-z A: A-Z 0: 0-9 .: all ascii values (32...126) +: 32...255 (default(!)) -h show command options
Nasty will not work if you try it with a gpg-agent running in your system. For obvious reasons the agent will ask you the passphrase to access your private key - which you probably don't record, right? :)
