PasswordMaker the Widget is a small, lightweight, free, widget which creates unique, secure passwords that are very easy for you to retrieve but no one else. Nothing is stored anywhere, anytime, so thereÕs nothing to be hacked, lost, or stolen. You provide PASSWORDMAKER two pieces of information: a Òmaster passwordÓ Ñ that one, single password you like Ñ and the URL of the website requiring a password.
Through the magic of one-way hash algorithms, PASSWORDMAKER calculates a message digest, also known as a digital fingerprint, which can be used as your password for the website. Although one-way hash algorithms have a number of interesting characteristics, the one capitalized by PASSWORDMAKER is that the resulting fingerprint (password) does Ònot reveal anything about the input that was used to generate it.Ó In other words, if someone has one or more of your generated passwords, it is computationally infeasible for him to derive your master password or to calculate your other passwords.
