Gareth Brown has posted a great snippet of code that generates pronounceable passwords. The hope with this, of course, is that users will be more likely to remember passwords if they can say them, yet can’t be dictionary attacked as easily as real words.

However, there is a finite set of possible passwords produced by this generator, so, as Gareth suggests, its more suited for “lost password” functionality, etc.
