1. MS Access Autonumber fields can be set to generate unique random numbers. So if you use ASP, you can Access to generate a unique random number and keep it on the serverside (in the database). Possibly MS SQL has a comparable function ?

2. For a random password, you could use the ASP-Cookie.

All this can be put together with the pesonal info in the database.
