Master Password (algorithm)

Master Password is an algorithm designed by Maarten Billemont for creating unique passwords in a reproducible manner. It differs from traditional password managers in that the passwords are not stored on disk or in the cloud, but are recreated every time by using information entered by the user; most importantly, their full name, a master password, and a unique name for the service the password is intended for.
