This simple tool uses a bank of 96 commonly used lower and upper-case letters, integers, and special characters to randomly generate secure passwords. Password character arrays are randomly chosen from this bank using Matlab's 'randi.m' function, drawing uniformly distributed pseudorandom integers of specified length.
Additional options are included, such as limiting the password bank to only use alphanumeric characters (n = 62, upper & lower case), or disallowing repeated characters. An optional output indicates the number of possible passwords which could be generated using the specified parameters.
