About Java Passwordsafe
Password Safe SWT is a password database utility. Like many other such products, commercial and otherwise, it stores your passwords in an encrypted file, allowing you to remember only one password (the "safe combination"), instead of all the username/password combinations that you use. Password Safe SWT is a java clone and a child project of http://passwordsafe.sourceforge.net, where you can still access old versions of it.
What makes Java Password Safe different? Three things:
- Simplicity: Password Safe is designed to do one thing, and to do it well. Start the application, enter your "combination", double-click on the right entry - presto - the password is now on your clipboard, ready for pasting.
- Security: The original version was designed and written by Bruce Schneier. That said, it is a rewrite in java, so you can't blame him for our errors ;-)
- Open Source: The source code for the project is available for inspection. For SVN access, see https://sourceforge.net/scm/?type=svn&group_id=243370
Password Safe SWT currently runs on Windows 2000, XP and Vista (all 32bit), Mac OS X (32 carbon and 64 cocoa) and Linux (x86 and x86_64). Support for additional platforms may come in future releases.
