What does the passphrase option do?
PasswordCard requires a 16 digit hexadecimal number for the key. The passphrase option creates the key for you from a word or phrase that you might find easier to remember. An SHA256 hash is made from your passphrase and the first 16 characters of the hash are used as the key. There are many online utilities
that can produce this hash for you.
