--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Fedora Update Notification
FEDORA-2008-5779
2008-06-27 17:55:36
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Name        : perl-Crypt-GeneratePassword
Product     : Fedora 8
Version     : 0.03
Release     : 12.fc8
URL         : http://search.cpan.org/dist/Crypt-GeneratePassword/
Summary     : Generate secure random pronounceable passwords
Description :
Crypt::GeneratePassword generates random passwords that are (more or less)
pronounceable. Unlike Crypt::RandPasswd, it doesn't use the FIPS-181 NIST
standard, which is proven to be insecure. It does use a similar interface,
so it should be a drop-in replacement in most cases.
