Diceware Passphrase Generator – Python 2.7
It has been a while since I have done anything with Python so as a quick easy ‘get back into it’ I though I would create a Diceware Passphrase Generator. This is not a truly secure implementation as I am only using the python random function, as this quote from the Python Document Library explains:
Warning: The pseudo-random generators of this module should not be used for security purposes. Use os.urandom() or SystemRandom if you require a cryptographically secure pseudo-random number generator.
I will be modifying the script to use the os.urandom() function and will post it here when I do.
And here is the code:
import random def dicenumber(): diceout = "" for i in range(5): # 5 dice rolls diceout += `random.randint(1,6)` # add result of dice roll to variable return diceout def diceware(x): wordlist = open('diceware.wordlist.asc', 'r') for line in wordlist: if line.startswith(x): wordlist.close() return line for i in range(4): print diceware(dicenumber()), # increase number for longer passphrases
