Some time ago, i cobbled together [0]. It's a simple shell script that
autogenerates passwords, and, if you want, also usernames. The
generation uses a constant random seed and pwgen, plus a salt for each
password, so it should be quite hard to predict the passwords that come
out of it.

It uses DMenu to display a list of password entries, and xclip to put
the username and password into the X selection, with a three second
delay between each. After the password has been in the selection for
three seconds, it is replaced with a random number to prevent leaks.

This can be used for anything that requires you to enter a
username/password combination, for example SSH logins (though for SSH
public key authentication is probably a smarter approach), serial
console logins to network switches or, well, websites.
