It depends on what you mean by `advanced'.

The simplest way is to use password derivation, e.g.,

$ openssl sha1 -binary | openssl base64
master-password mail.yahoo.com
[Control-D]
sYtnc48oq8Ty6kyYu4Qf+2RkGjU=  -- this is the password

But there are also more `user-friendly' ways, e.g.,
http://passwordsafe.sourceforge.net/
