      Random Password Generator


    This is just a quick cgi script that was written to enable people to generate random passwords. This is done via the application mkpasswd that is available with Red Hat based systems. It is very simple to use and can be used for many different applications, such as just supplying it for users on your site or you can use it to assign a random password to someones account with some simple modifications. Below is the source code for the cgi file, just paste it into a file called randpass.cgi in your /cgi-bin/ directory and chmod 755 it.

    #!/bin/csh -f
    # Random Password Generator 1.0
    # Copyright (c) 2001, All Rights Reserved
    # Designed and Coded by Martin (a.k.a. Mayhem)
    # Latest Information:

    # Run the 'mkpasswd' command to get the generated password
    set genpass = `mkpasswd`;

    # Display output in HTML format
    echo "Content-type:text/html\n"
    echo "<HTML>"
    echo " <HEAD>"
    echo " <TITLE>Random Password Generator</TITLE>"
    echo " </HEAD>"
    echo " <BODY BGCOLOR=#FFFFFF>"
    echo " <CENTER>"
    echo " <FONT FACE=ARIAL><P>"
    echo " <B>Your Random Password is:</B> $genpass "
    echo " </FONT></P>"
    echo " Copyright © 2001, All Rights Reserved."
    echo " </FONT>"
    echo " </CENTER>"
    echo " </BODY>"
    echo "</HTML>"

    The script will output something like this (you may cutomise it as you see fit):
