mkpwd is a password generating program. It is designed to satisfy a scalable range of security demands. Its standard behavior is to generate one password consisting of any of all printable ASCII characters (32-128) with a length between 6 and 10. You can modify the way passwords are generated via command-line switches. You can specify a length range, the characters used, and even let mkpwd generate passwords that are somewhat readable and therefore easier to remember (and easier to crack as well).
