Abstract or Summary:
This publication specifies a standard to be used by Federal organizations that require computer generated pronounceable passwords to authenticate the personal identity of an automated data processing (ADP) system user, and to authorize access to system resources. The standard describes an automated password generation algorithm that randomly creates simple pronounceable syllables as passwords. The password generator accepts input from a random number generator based on the Data Encryption Standard (DES) cryptographic algorithm defined in Federal Information Processing Standard 46-1 (FIPS PUB 46-1).
