NAME App::genpw - Generate random password, with patterns and wordlists VERSION This document describes version 0.011 of App::genpw (from Perl distribution App-genpw), released on 2020-05-22. SYNOPSIS See the included script genpw. FUNCTIONS genpw Usage: genpw(%args) -> [status, msg, payload, meta] Generate random password, with patterns and wordlists. This is yet another utility to generate random password. Features: * Allow specifying pattern(s), e.g. '%8a%s' means 8 random alphanumeric characters followed by a symbol. * Use words from wordlists. * Use strong random source when available, otherwise fallback to Perl's builtin "rand()". Examples: By default generate base56 password 12-20 characters long (-p %12$20B): % genpw Uk7Zim6pZeMTZQUyaM Generate 5 passwords instead of 1: % genpw 5 igYiRhUb5t9d9f3J b7D44pnxZHJGQzDy2eg RXDtqjMvp2hNAdQ Xz3DmAL94akqtZ5xb 7TfANv9yxAaMGXm Generate random digits between 10 and 12 characters long: % genpw -p '%10$12d' 55597085674 Generate password in the form of a random word + 4 random digits. Words will be fed from STDIN: % genpw -p '%w%4d' < /usr/share/dict/words shafted0412 Like the above, but words will be fetched from "WordList::*" modules. You need to install the genpw-wordlist CLI. By default, will use wordlist from WordList::EN::Enable: % genpw-wordlist -p '%w%4d' sedimentologists8542 Generate a random GUID: % genpw -p '%8h-%4h-%4h-%4h-%12h' ff26d142-37a8-ecdf-c7f6-8b6ae7b27695 Like the above, but in uppercase: % genpw -p '%8h-%4h-%4h-%4h-%12h' -U 22E13D9E-1187-CD95-1D05-2B92A09E740D Use configuration file to avoid typing the pattern every time, put this in "~/genpw.conf": [profile=guid] patterns = "%8h-%4h-%4h-%4h-%12h" then: % genpw -P guid 008869fa-177e-3a46-24d6-0900a00e56d5 This function is not exported. Arguments ('*' denotes required arguments): * action => *str* (default: "gen") * case => *str* (default: "default") Force casing. "default" means to not change case. "random" changes casing some letters randomly to lower-/uppercase. "lower" forces lower case. "upper" forces UPPER CASE. "title" forces Title case. * len => *posint* If no pattern is supplied, will generate random alphanum characters with this exact length. * max_len => *posint* If no pattern is supplied, will generate random alphanum characters with this maximum length. * min_len => *posint* If no pattern is supplied, will generate random alphanum characters with this minimum length. * num => *int* (default: 1) * patterns => *array[str]* Pattern(s) to use. A pattern is string that is similar to a printf pattern. %P (where P is certain letter signifying a format) will be replaced with some other string. %Nw (where N is a number) will be replaced by a word of length N, %N$MP (where N and M is a number) will be replaced by a word of length between N and M. Anything else will be used as-is. Available conversions: %l Random Latin letter (A-Z, a-z) %d Random digit (0-9) %h Random hexdigit (0-9a-f) %a Random letter/digit (Alphanum) (A-Z, a-z, 0-9; combination of %l and %d) %s Random ASCII symbol, e.g. "-" (dash), "_" (underscore), etc. %x Random letter/digit/ASCII symbol (combination of %a and %s) %m Base64 character (A-Z, a-z, 0-9, +, /) %b Base58 character (A-Z, a-z, 0-9 minus IOl0) %B Base56 character (A-Z, a-z, 0-9 minus IOol01) %% A literal percent sign %w Random word Returns an enveloped result (an array). First element (status) is an integer containing HTTP status code (200 means OK, 4xx caller error, 5xx function error). Second element (msg) is a string containing error message, or 'OK' if status is 200. Third element (payload) is optional, the actual result. Fourth element (meta) is called result metadata and is optional, a hash that contains extra information.
