A strong password generator program with source code

In my previous post https://steemit.com/programming/@royalmacro/a-free-open-source-data-encryption-program-for-steemit-users I share a data encrypton tool with source code, now, today here I share another program, a strong password generator with source code.
This program will generate strong, hard-to-guess passwords. I’ll do it by hashing together “domain name”, “login/user id” & “a secure master key”.
If you use the same secure master key for every password generations then you do not need to write down or, memorize your generated passwords. When you need your password then repeat the same procedure to re-generate it. If your “domain name”, “login/user id” & “a secure master key” are not different then you will generate the same password.
If you use only one secure master key then you have to only memorize your master key, not the passwords.
Lets try it !
Step by Step Development :
Open a new project in Visual Basic 8. Select “Standard EXE”.


Create 5 text boxes & one command button. Text1 textbox, Text2 textbox, Text3 textbox, Text4 textbox, Text5 textbox & Command1 commandbutton.
enter image description here
Add 5 Labels with captions “domain name”, “login/user id”, “secure master key”, “strong password” & “normal password”. And change the caption of the Command1 commandbutton to “Generate”. Add the passwordchar “*” to the Text3 textbox “password char” properties.
enter image description here
Add a module “Module 1” to the project
enter image description here
Add this following codes to the module “Module 1” :
enter image description here
Option Explicit

Public Function CryptRC4(sText As String, sKey As String) As String
Dim baS(0 To 255) As Byte
Dim baK(0 To 255) As Byte
Dim bytSwap     As Byte
Dim lI          As Long
Dim lJ          As Long
Dim lIdx        As Long

For lIdx = 0 To 255
    baS(lIdx) = lIdx
    baK(lIdx) = Asc(Mid$(sKey, 1 + (lIdx Mod Len(sKey)), 1))
Next
For lI = 0 To 255
    lJ = (lJ + baS(lI) + baK(lI)) Mod 256
    bytSwap = baS(lI)
    baS(lI) = baS(lJ)
    baS(lJ) = bytSwap
Next
lI = 0
lJ = 0

    lI = (lI + 1) Mod 256
    lJ = (lJ + baS(lI)) Mod 256
    bytSwap = baS(lI)
    baS(lI) = baS(lJ)
    baS(lJ) = bytSwap
    CryptRC4 = CryptRC4 & Chr$((pvCryptXor(baS((CLng(baS(lI)) + baS(lJ)) Mod 256), Asc(Mid$(sText, lIdx, 1)))))
Next
End Function

Public Function pvCryptXor(ByVal lI As Long, ByVal lJ As Long) As Long
If lI = lJ Then
    pvCryptXor = lJ
Else
    pvCryptXor = lI Xor lJ
End If
End Function

Public Function ToHexDump(sText As String) As String
Dim lIdx            As Long

For lIdx = 1 To Len(sText)
    ToHexDump = ToHexDump & Right$("0" & Hex(Asc(Mid(sText, lIdx, 1))), 2)
Next
End Function

Public Function FromHexDump(sText As String) As String
Dim lIdx            As Long

For lIdx = 1 To Len(sText) Step 2
    FromHexDump = FromHexDump & Chr$(CLng("&H" & Mid(sText, lIdx, 2)))
Next
End Function
Input this following code to Form1 :

Completed ! Now run the exe file :
enter image description here
In this tutorial I use “gmail.com” as domain, “samplegmailaccount@gmail.com” as login/user id & “12345678” as my secure master key. And after pressing the “Generate” button I got two types of passwords – strong (0Z5#388h834926252CB6) & normal (0o563T84834926252CB6). Look strong type passwords has special characters & normal has not. Some websites don’t support any special characters as password. So, you can normal password there. If you change any fields of domain, login/user id & secure master key then this program will generate quite different password.
If you use only one secure master key to generate your passwords then you have to only memorize your master key, not the passwords. And you will generate different types of strong passwords for different websites or Login/User IDs.
Thank you :D

A short article on "flying dinosaurs"

image credit We are all familiar to Pterodactyl, the flying dinosaur. But, actually there existed so many flying dinosaurs. The common name of all this “flying dinosaurs” is Pterosaurs. There are about 130 genus of Pterosaurs existed in the jurassic period. Here I listed some of them — 1. Pterodactyl The Pterodactyls had a couple of very wide wings up to 40 feet long. But, these wings are not similar to modern bird’s wings. There were no feathers , their wings were made of a leathery substance. They lived near the sea in the cave & trees. They ate sea fish, large insects & other small dinosaurs. We found their fossils in Europe, North America, Australia, and Africa.  Pterodactyl image credit Pterodactyl Fossil image credit 2. Petinosaurus Petinosaurus wings were formed by membranes of skin and other soft tissues. And also there were no feathers on their wings. These types of flying dinosaurs are small in size than Pterodactyl. Food habit is the same as Pt

One day at the Zoo -Episode #07

Two weeks ago I visited "Alipore Zoological Gardens" in Kolkata which is mostly known as "Alipore Zoo". It was founded in the year of 1875 in British India. And it was established by Edward VII, and then The prince of wales. This zoo is the biggest attraction of the tourists in the "City of Joy". However, the Alipore Zoo has some notable historical value as it's the most old zoological garden in India. The zoo was also famous for the home of "Aldabra giant tortoise". But, in 2006 the tortoise died at the age of almost 250. There are now over 1266 animals of 108 species are living in the Alipore Zoo. And annual visitors of the zoo is about 3 millions. **I captured some photos, but, due to the obstacle of the fence I couldn't take them very clearly. ** To be continued ...

"royalmacro" curation trail update

Yesterday after hard fork happened I kept auto curation off from my trail. Now, it'll remain be paused until I get 100% voting power. But, in this meantime I'll follow every curators of my trail. And shall cast vote manually, but, not to everyone. Only some random manual votes shall be made until I reach 100% voting power. Current Voting Power : 67.08% Thank you :) N.B : You may cash out all your SBD earnings before Poloniex Wallet Maintenance done ! SBD price must be dropped due to HF effect on reward price increment. It' just an advice. And I can't give any guarantee that my prediction is 100% accurate. I just cashed out  $1000 SBD  to Bitcoin via  blocktrades .us. It's very swift & gives higher rate for over $100 SBD exchange. I recommend everyone to use  @blocktrades  instant exchange service  blocktrades.us  Here is the payment I received - https://blockchain.info/tx/68873831521d739a4cc407207fbe236e2a6f84dceba680b9517527183b195c1e Tags : S

look back [An Original Poem]

look back [An Original Poem] Now come the night I turn into the dark. The hidden tears in the rain This is her very trying period. Came through the open window Warm to cold obsession. Today, on the banks of the memory of the dream corpse You are the joy of the first raft. Your marble dust and leaves He is a light dream home country. And suddenly fights with section The boat, which washed away a different direction. I alone so far, I wish Deep irrepressible desire heart I want to return to play in the Almighty One evening stories.
