Reason for asking: I need to generate a random password. It doesn't have to be particularly secure, just different from most of the others
There seems to be a few methods of generating random passwords on here but most are lengthy and complicated bits of code. However it looks to me like if a bridge is created with no port members it is given a random MAC address. For example:
If this is really 'random' (or at least random enough that it is unlikely another router will pick the same MAC) this seems like a very simple way of generating a string of characters to use as a password. Just remove the ':', perhaps covert to lower case, and you are good to go.
Anyone care to comment on the suitability this solution?
