Quick one liner for you this new year…

Generate a random 8 character or greater password containing a-z, A-Z and 0-9:

egrep -ioam1 '[a-z0-9]{8}' /dev/urandom

to create longer passwords, replace the numeric value inside of the { } to whatever you would like.


egrep -ioam1 '[a-z0-9]{9}' /dev/urandom
