Passphrases are more secure than passwords

Passphrases are a lot easier to remember than a short and cryptic mix of lowercase, uppercase and special symbols, and are just as secure, if not more!

Diceware is used to generate cryptographically strong passphrases. Don't let that frighten you away though, a passphrase is just a password made of words you can remember. It is based on the principle that truly random selection of words from a wordlist, can result in easily memorable passwords that are also extremely resistant to attack. Traditional Diceware uses rolls of physical dice, this application uses a strong random number generator in place of the dice. Passwords that are six words or longer are thought to be safe for any very high-security applications.
