For a project I'm working on I wanted a tool that would create a new address and print it out with a private key. The goals are:
* Minimal so it's as easy (as such a thing can be) to read and audit
* Runs on any machine with minimal setup
* Runs locally, not web-based.
Obviously bitaddress.org does much more but as I intend to recommend this for the most secure storage scenarios, I prefer a simpler script rather than a full interface.
Joric in #bitcoin-dev was kind enough to throw something together and I've made a couple minor tweaks to simplify it.
It is hosted at my github at https://github.com/weex/addrgen
My hope is that for simple generation of random/non-vanity addresses in secure scenarios that this can be used and recommended.
Please recommend ways that this script or any process that used it can reduce the chance of the private key being stolen.
