Program is a JavaScript bookmarklet that resides in browser’s favourites-menu

Description of functionality / features (client and server)

The program generates a unique password from a masterpassword and a domain-name. Though the master-password stays the same, the generated passwords differ when visiting another domain. The tool is a small aid to avoid security risks and linkability by using identical passwords. Generated passwords are always eight characters long.

Main functionality

Password-generating by hashing master-password and domain-name.

Purchase costs in EUR

0 (There is also a Firefox-extension available. Although linkability of user accounts is definetly weakened, generated passwords may lack high security. The used Hash-function ist quite trivial due to bookmarklet restrictions for code-size. Thus by knowing the tool / bookmarklet that is used for generating a password, the basic master-password can be recovered. The tool is not recomended for high-risk sites.)
