  • Built-in password quality checking system (now it has support for Bloom filter for faster access)
  • Two Password Generation Algorithms: 1. Pronounceable Password Generation Algorithm (according to NIST FIPS 181) 2. Random Character Password Generation Algorithm with 35 configurable modes of operation
  • Configurable password length parameters
  • Configurable amount of generated passwords
  • Ability to initialize RNG with user string
  • Support for /dev/random
  • Ability to crypt() generated passwords and print them as additional output.
  • Special parameters to use APG in script
  • Ability to log password generation requests for network version
  • Ability to control APG service access using tcpd
  • Ability to use password generation service from any type of box (Mac, WinXX, etc.) that connected to network
