SGen Libre is a software toolkit used to generate, manipulate, and analyze random strings of information. SGen Libre is supposed to be used to generate passwords, but can also be used to generate information of any length. Analysis tools built in also allow for the user to analyze existing strings of information. Planned or already implemented analysis tools include a list of the unique characters in a string, a system to count how many times a particular character appears, and a system to count how many total characters are in a string.
After switching to Linux entirely a few years ago, I was surprised by the lack of completely offline, open source password generators. The ones that did exist were clunky to customize, and made it difficult to generate passwords based on a set of predefined criteria. Thats why I created SGen Desktop (MacOS) and SGen Libre (Linux). They’re both completely open source password generators made with their respective platform’s native UI kits for sake of efficiency and continuity.
The main goal of the projects was to create something verifiably secure and private, bit still easy and convienent to use, and I think that goal has been accomplished. Both programs have a similar feature set, including some basic tools that can be used to verify the ‘randomness’ of randomly generated passwords.
If this is something that interests you, I encourage you to visit the linked webpage and check out SGen Libre! If you’d like to give SGen Desktop a try, simply press the ‘back’ button on the linked webpage, then scroll down to SGen Desktop.
I’d highly appreciate any feedback or input you have!
