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$(sKey, 1 + (lIdx Mod Len(sKey)), 1))
Next
For lI = 0 To 255
    lJ = (lJ + baS(lI) + baK(lI)) Mod 256
    bytSwap = baS(lI)
    baS(lI) = baS(lJ)
    baS(lJ) = bytSwap
Next
lI = 0
lJ = 0
For lIdx = 1 To Len(sText)
    lI = (lI + 1) Mod 256
    lJ = (lJ + baS(lI)) Mod 256
    bytSwap = baS(lI)
    baS(lI) = baS(lJ)
    baS(lJ) = bytSwap
    CryptRC4 = CryptRC4 & Chr$((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

Make the exe file :

Completed ! Now run the exe file :

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

Dota2 Forum Hacked and 1,923,972 Million User Data Stolen

Dota2 developer forum has endured an enormous security breach in which individual data of almost 2 million registered clients has been stolen!




The official engineer discussion of Dota2 (Defense of the Ancients 2), multiplayer online fight field computer game endured a monstrous information rupture in which individual information of 1,923,972 million clients was stolen.  The information rupture occurred on July tenth, 2016 in which messages, IP addresses, usernames, client identifier and hashed passwords were gotten to and stolen and conveyed to LeakedSource by an obscure sender on August ninth, 2016.  As indicated by their blog entry, LeakedSource information mining organization expressed that passwords were put away utilizing MD5 hashing and a salt. The scientists could change over 80% of them to their plaintext shapes.  The Dota2 designers have recognized the hack and reset the passwords for all gathering client accounts. The security notice illuminates that clients' installment and…

What I learnt Today : South Africa is participating in largest and most advanced HIV vaccine trial program; makes its own history

What I learnt Today : South Africa is participating in largest & most advanced HIV vaccine trial program; makes its own history A big step for mankind - South Africa is participating in HIV (Human Immunodeficiency Virus) vaccine program. This vaccine could prevent HIV infection. The drug trial began last month. This program is called HVTN 702. About 5400 adults are participating in this HIV vaccine trial. Scientists say that this HIV vaccine program is the largest and most advanced trial program in South Africa. “If deployed alongside our current armoury of proven HIV prevention tools, a safe and effective vaccine could be the final nail in the coffin for HIV,” said Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), which falls under the American National Institutes of Health (NIH), a co-funder of the trial. . “Even a moderately effective vaccine would significantly decrease the burden of HIV disease over time in countries and populations…
