I'm new to this so hope this is the right place to ask!
I'm currently in the process of compiling a custom wordlist/password list and would like to know how many possible words can be produced.
All of the words will abide by the following rules:
- Exactly 10 characters long
- Will contain exactly 6 letters (a-f, all lowercase)
- Will contain exactly 4 numbers (2-9)
- The letters and numbers can appear anywhere in the word
I read in a forum somewhere that this problem could be solved using the following formula:
(6 possible letters ^ 6 letters) * (8 possible numbers * 4 numbers) * password length
This results in: 1,911,029,760 combinations. Which seems low?
Any help with this would be greatly appreciated as it is for my Computer Science Dissertation!
