I can’t tell whether this is satire or not, use the suggest feature if you think it’s satire as well. ;)

    Entropy being a sellable commodity is an interesting idea but as far as I can tell this ‘business’ is just an exercise in entrepreneurship for the girl running it (which is neat but not really a lobsters thing in my opinion).

    http://world.std.com/~reinhold/diceware.wordlist.asc and a die or maybe some git commits should get you the same result, with less chance of a govt getting your password from the mail.

      Yes, but on the other hand it’s a cool way to raise awareness about password security, and useful to non-technical people.

      First time I’ve heard of it, but I don’t think it’s satire. I also saw, today, an article in the Telegraph about an 11-year-old girl setting up a business selling secure passwords using Diceware.

      Edit: Oops, I should have read the ‘about’ page before commenting :-D This site seems to be the source of the article I posted. I have no idea then.

          Is it just me or does this part of the FAQ not really make sense:

          Q: How do you know I’m not stealing your passwords?

          A: Once you get your passwords you need to make some changes such as capitalizing some letters and/or adding symbols such as exclamations. This way it’s not the exact same one that I gave you.

          To me this still makes it pretty easy for her to guess your password.
