Well, according to Wikipedia, this is a passphrase;
A passphrase is a sequence of words or other text used to control access to a computer system, program or data. A passphrase is similar to a password in usage, but is generally longer for added security (....).
So I could say, the following is a passphrase (example only);
If I generate a password(?) with gpg;
$ gpg --gen-random -a 0 17 fmmyY/aEufDdmvBlwTw6tPU=
Is this considered a passphrase too? Which one is more secure nowadays? When should I use one over the other? Would the generated gpg password be more secure than the passphrase I quoted? If so, why?
For example, PGP asks for a passphrase (for the master key), which one would I choose? The first option? Or the second?
