This girl is of Indian origin and is in the limelight to generate passwords via dice rolls. She lives in the New York City and studies in 6th grade.
Diceware is actually a very old concept. In this method, passwords are generated by rolling a dice. This way random numbers are generated that relate to a long list of English words.
After generating random numbers, the words are formed into non-sensical string.
