Hi team

I have created a basic python script (""), that allows to
generate or update the Tryton master password, and validate it against

The goal is to harden the security, as well as to facilitate its
generation without editing manually the configuration file.

It's done for GNU Health. Starting GNU Health 2.8, it will be called in
the standard installation program (, but it is
also a stand-alone program, to update the password 

You can check the latest version at the GNU Health mercurial
repository[2], in the default branch, browsing under
"tryton/scripts/security" directory . 

I hope it can be useful to general Tryton installations, so I'm copying
it to tryton-contrib list. It's just starting, so expect
bugs, backup your configuration file, and don't use it in production
environments yet :)

Next should be checking for bad passwords at user level.

Suggestions are most welcome.
