The Dice Road Dictionary™ Password Generation Codebook

Dice Road Dictionary™

Passwords are one of the weakest links in computing. In the mid-90's a gentleman named Arnold Reinhold released a special dictionary used to form unbreakable passwords called the Diceware™ Dictionary.

After noticing how many languages the GNU spell checker, aspell supports, I thought it would be a good idea to to create a program that could generate Diceware™-style dictionaries for any language and any shape of dice (including the 2-sided dice called coins). I call a dictionary generated by my program a Dice Road Dictionary™

While some may find dice a "throwback" to an earlier era, there are sound technical reasons for relying on them to generate passwords for high-stakes applications.
