comment Generating a TRULY random string in PHP
Also, there's a security element to this, as the strings could have a monetary value. It's essential that they not be predictable in any way.

comment Generating a TRULY random string in PHP
@Adnan Thanks, I'll consider it. Obviously it means less potential permutations which, depending on the length of the string the client wants, and the printer is happy printing, could be a big problem.

+1 I don't understand enough about cryptography to be able to appreciate if your answer truly is an improvement or not! It's complicated stuff :) Thanks, though!

@Adnan So you would suggest that $code = bin2hex(openssl_random_pseudo_bytes(12)); is the perfect solution to this problem?

comment How does HSBC's “Secure Key” actually work?
It's definitely not 2: When you press the button you often get the same number. And I sometimes happily click away at it many times before entering a number. If you think about it, in real world terms, 2 is a terrible solution. A user could easily irreversibly make the secure key worthless by entering their pin and pressing generate key 10 times.
