PWGen Portable 2.2.0 has been released. PWGen is a secure password generator and clipboard encryptor/decryptor. It's packaged in PortableApps.com Format so it can easily integrate with the PortableApps.com Platform. And it's open source and completely free.
PWGen is a password generator capable of creating large amounts of cryptographically-secure passwords or passphrases consisting of words from a word list. It uses a “random pool” technique to generate random data based on user inputs (keystrokes, mouse handling) and volatile system parameters. PWGen provides lots of options to customize passwords to the users’ various needs. Additionally, it offers strong text encryption and the creation of random data files (e.g., key files).
PortableApps.com Installer / PortableApps.com Format
PWGen Portable is packaged in a PortableApps.com Installer so it will automatically detect an existing PortableApps.com installation when your drive is plugged in. It supports upgrades by installing right over an existing copy, preserving all settings. And it's in PortableApps.com Format, so it automatically works with the PortableApps.com Platform including the Menu and Backup Utility.
