Automated Password Generator - Standalone version

APG (Automated Password Generator) is the tool set for random password generation. It generates some random words of required type and prints them to standard output. This binary package contains only the standalone version of apg. Advantages:

 * Built-in ANSI X9.17 RNG (Random Number Generator)(CAST/SHA1)
 * Built-in password quality checking system (now it has support for Bloom
   filter for faster access)
 * Two Password Generation Algorithms:
    1. Pronounceable Password Generation Algorithm (according to NIST
       FIPS 181)
    2. Random Character Password Generation Algorithm with 35
       configurable modes of operation
 * Configurable password length parameters
 * Configurable amount of generated passwords
 * Ability to initialize RNG with user string
 * Support for /dev/random
 * Ability to crypt() generated passwords and print them as additional output.
 * Special parameters to use APG in script
 * Ability to log password generation requests for network version
 * Ability to control APG service access using tcpd
 * Ability to use password generation service from any type of box (Mac,
   WinXX, etc.) that connected to network
 * Ability to enforce remote users to use only allowed type of password
The client/server version of apg has been deliberately omitted.
