A security solution to generate different login credentials for different sites by using the same single string

When a user registered with multiple websites, he always faces a choice: 1: To use different credential pairs (username/password) for different websites, 2: To use few shared credential pairs for different websites. 3: To use credential of well-known websites to login Each above approach has itself challenge: 1: If to use different credential pairs for different websites, the user must to remember a long list for credential pairs 2: If to use few shared credential pairs then if one of credential pair leaked, which can cause all shared websites unsafe. 3: If to use credential of well-known websites to login, but some websites does not support, and even support, if the well-known websites are attacked, will cause other websites unsafe. The present invention is trying to provide a client solution to solve above challenges: to provide a safe solution to use the same single string generating different credential pair for different websites The present solution is trying to provide a safe client solution to use the same single string and different website data to dynamically generate different login credential pairs for different websites. The solution can help the person to avoid keeping a long list of login credential pairs (username/password) when access all kinds of websites. The present solution is different from a normal password management tool, which requires to persistent website credential pairs. The present solution is trying to avoid persistent any credential data and also avoid to persistent the same single string, and also avoid to transmit the single string on any network.

Assumption: Each Website has its own authentication server to save user credential data, and one person use different credential pairs (username/password) to access each website.

Solution: 1, There is a config-server to save configuration data for each user, for example:

website url, encryption algorithm, expiration timestamp, etc. This server can locate locally, like a local manage tool, or this server can be located on internet like a pub...
