Need to encrypt a password for Wiki access?
Before you proceed, a gentle reminder that the security of your data on this site is only as strong as the weakest password protecting it. Since you are creating your own password, its strength is up to you. Good passwords contain at least 8 uppercase, lowercase, numeric and non-alphanumeric characters interspersed. Use one of the following tools for guidance:
Note that password strength tools (including these) have their own strengths and weaknesses!
For higher security, I'd recommend that you use the Aspirine web site below and specify the "bcrypt" algorithm, cost 8. Enter your <plain text username><space><plain text password> in the left pane and click the "Generate htpasswd content" button below the right pane. Then email the encrypted password ASCII line to me. If you forget your plain text password, you'll have to email me another encrypted line since I won't be able to help you otherwise. If you want to change your password from time to time, please feel free to send me another encrypted line. I'll be happy to oblige.
To encode a password, you can use one of the following links or the htpasswd generator of your choice:
