UPDATE: 9/26/2016: AtmoPwd is no longer supported and may likely not work anymore, due to the server it relies on being shut down.
AtomoPwd is a command-line password generator. AtmoPwd, short for “atmospheric password,” generates truly random passwords using atmospheric noise. It is an unofficial client for the website https://www.passwd.me.
What people are saying…
“AtmoPwd can quickly create passwords based on your security level preferences, either random ones, which are harder to crack or remember, or pronounceable ones that are easier to learn, yet have a slightly higher chance of being decoded.
Because the application runs in Command Prompt, it can be easily integrated with other similar programs that need to generate passwords. On top of this, the program is portable, as it does not require installation, nor does it changes registries on your system.” — Softpedia.com
