PassGPT

PassGPT is a causal language model trained on password leaks. It was first introduced in this paper. This version of the model was trained on passwords from the RockYou leak, after filtering those that were at most 16 characters long. You can also access PassGPT trained on passwords up to 10 characters long, without restrictions here.

This is a curated version of the model reported in the paper. Vocabulary size was reduced to the most meaningful characters and training was slightly optimized. Results are slightly better with these architectures.

Usage and License Notices

License PassGPT is intended and licensed for research use only. The model and code are CC BY NC 4.0 (allowing only non-commercial use) and should not be used outside of research purposes. This model should never be used to attack real systems. Access will be granted upon request. Please, make sure to indicate the details and scope of your project.

Model description

The model inherits the GPT2LMHeadModel architecture and implements a custom BertTokenizer that encodes each character in a password as a single token, avoiding merges. It was trained from a random initialization, and the code for training can be found in the official repository.

Password Generation

Passwords can be sampled from the model using the built-in generation methods provided by HuggingFace and using the "start of password token" as seed (i.e. <s>). This code can be used to generate one password with PassGPT. Note you may need to generate an access token to authenticate your download.
