For me it looks like combinator attack generalized to a given final
password length.

It is not covered in the presentation but I assume it is string
concatenation, but there could be some additional rule engine to build
passwords from n "roots" or "base word sets", this in some cases would
break chain length limit which I guess might be some kind of

I like the idea, and it is good to see that someone is still working
on new methods.
