An open source strong password generator program for steemians [repost]

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
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

Visiting deep inside the Sundarbans & spent days with Bawali - Episode #16

In the last October-November I visited Sundarbans, the world's one of the largest mangrove forest. It was also declared as world heritage site by UNESCO in 1997. In this forest a numerous wildlife species exist - birds, reptiles, fishes, amphibians and also the king of the forest "Royal Bengal Tiger". The ganges dolphins & crocodiles are also living in the canals of Sundarbans. Chital is a one kind of spotted deer living in this forest. The rural life in the area of this coastal forest is also very attractive. They basically maintain their lives by collecting honey, woods and fishes. In the native language they are called as Bawali. I spent some days with them. Here I share some of my tour photographs of Sundarbans and Bawali -- Kewra, one kind of mangrove tree grows in Sunderbans Main Mangrove trees in Sundarbans (from left)- Gewa (Excoecaria agallocha L.) , Kewra (Pandanus odoratissimus), Sundori (Heritiera littoralis) and Golpata (Nypa fruticans) Camera :

One day at the Zoo -Episode #26

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. * Freshwater crocodile Nilgai Zebra To be continued ...
