Secure Password Generator

If you are looking for a high security password generator for your wireless system or pc passwords, then I have found Gibson Research Ultra High Security Password Generator to be very good

“Every time this page is displayed, our server generates a unique set of custom, high quality, cryptographic-strength password strings which are safe for you to use”

You are then presented with three options:

64 random hexadecimal characters (0-9 and A-F)
63 random printable ASCII characters
63 random alpha-numeric characters (a-z, A-Z, 0-9)

Just copy and paste the password that you want to use.
