Lorca

Version pipeline status

Details

Lorca is a gem for generating passphrases based on the algorithm originally described in EFF Dice-Generated Passphrases. It uses EFF's long word list. The generator can be used from the command line interface, or added as a library.

Passphrases, unlike passwords, are meant to be memorized. Check out these links for a few ideas on how to memorize them:

Passphrases are great password manager keys.

Quick Start

Command line interface

Generate, and copy to clipboard, an 8-word passphrase.

$ lorca -p

As Lorca is only capable of writing to the clipboard, it's up to the user to paste it, and store it, somewhere safe.

For more details on how to use the CLI

$ lorca

System Requirements

  • *nix OS.
  • xsel or xclip (linux)
  • Ruby 2.4+

Installation

CLI

To use Lorca as a command line interface:

$ gem fetch lorca -v <version>
$ ruby -rdigest/sha2 -e "puts Digest::SHA512.new.hexdigest(File.read('lorca-<version>.gem'))"

Compare it with the hash in checksum/lorca-<version>.gem.sha512 to verify the integrity of the fetched gem. If the checksum matches

$ gem install lorca -v <version>

Gem

To use Lorca as a gem add it to the project's Gemfile:

gem "lorca"

And then run

$ bundle install

For details on the API check out the online documentation.
