       diceware - create passphrases


       diceware [OPTION]... [FILE]


       diceware  generates  passphrases by concatenating words randomly picked from wordlists. It
       supports also real dice for passphrase generation.

       It is based on the proposals of Arnold G. Reinhold on


       positional arguments:

          FILE   optional input wordlist. '-' will read from stdin. Should contain one  word  per

       optional arguments:

          -h, --help
                 show help message and exit

          -n NUM, --num NUM
                 number of words to concatenate. Default 6

          -c, --caps
                 Capitalize words. This is the default.

                 Turn off capitalization.

          -s NUM, --specials NUM
                 Insert NUM special chars into generated word.

          -d DELIMITER, --delimiter DELIMITER
                 Separate words by DELIMITER. Empty string by default.

          -r SOURCE, --randomsource SOURCE
                 Get  randomness  from  this  source. Possible values: realdice, system. Default:

          -w [NAME [NAME ...]], --wordlist [NAME [NAME ...]]
                 Use words from this wordlist. Possible values: de, de_8k, en_adjectives, en_eff,
                 en_nouns, en_orig, en_securedrop. pt-br.  Default: en_eff

          -v, --verbose
                 Be verbose. Use several times for increased verbosity.

                 output version information and exit.

       Arguments related to realdice randomsource:

          --dice-sides N
                 Number of sides of dice. Default: 6


              Your personal diceware configuration file.

       diceware  also  comes  with  a  set of wordlists. The path where these lists are stored is
       showed with --help.


              Create    a    passphrase    using     defaults.     Outputs     something     like

       diceware -d "-" -n 3
              Create a passphrase with three words, separated by dash ("-"). Results in something
              like "Wheel-Dye-Honk"

       diceware --no-caps
              Create a passphrase without capital words. Creates something like "wheel-dye-honk".

       diceware -r realdice
              Use real dice to create a passphrase. The program will tell you what  to  do  (roll
              dice and tell what numbers appear) and in the end present a passphrase.

       diceware -r realdice --dice-sides 20
              Use  real  dice,  as  shown above, but this time use dice with 20 faces, instead of
              standard, 6-sided dice.

       diceware mywordlist.txt
              Create a passphrase with words from file "mywordlist.txt". The file should  contain
              one word on each line.

       diceware -w en_securedrop -s 2
              Create a passphrase with two special chars spread over the generated passphrase and
              containing words from wordlist "en_securedrop". This is one of the  wordlists  that
              come included with diceware. Creates something like: "PlayaBrigVer{SeesNe-tsGets".

       diceware -w en_adjectives en_nouns -n 2
              Create  two  syntactically  meaningful phrases, each one consisting of an adjective
              and a noun. Results in something like: "CruelAttendeesCleanCoffee".
