Diceware is used to create cryptographically strong passphrases. It is based on the principle that the truly random selection, based on rolls of dice, of words in a wordlist can result in easily memorable passwords that are also extremely resistant to attack by even the most powerful adversaries. Passwords that are six words or longer are thought to be safe for high security applications.
