#347 Networked DB with User account - assignable passwords

Jason H

I would like it if the application would require a
username and a password to login.

Now you can use the application and display passwords
based on the user that logged in..

Situational example: Administrators, and Operations
people have access to all passwords in a single db.
Tech support users who login would only see a subset of
the passwors in the db

    Furthermore you would be able to track which user took when a Password out of the database. This is especially interesting when you use the password safe in a network-environment. We use it for example for saving emergency-users. But we want to keep track of who and when read a passord from the database.
    I think this would be a great feature.

    So you want this tool to be integrated with the Windows login and / or Active Directory? So when I steal a laptop from your company and use a hacked recovery disk to reset the local Administrator account, I now have access to the contents of any PasswordSafe DB on the system? No thanks.

    If you really want that kind of control, just use NTFS to restrict access to the individual database stores on a per-user basis and force everyone in your organization to use the same passphrase. With very little effort, you can set up Default User profiles that automatically create these protected stores when new users are added to the system or log on for the first time and automatically launch PasswordSafe at startup with the path to the user's default DB.

    You're trying to address a process issue with software -- bad idea.

    I want Password Safe to have its own Users and groups, not AD or NTFS

    I think this would be a great feature. we have multiple users that use our pwsafe db. I would like to be able to keep a single db, and restrict access to only some passwords on a per user basis.

    I really believe this would be of great value to company IT departments everywhere, no need to have AD integration at this point just to have the ability to assign users and passwords
    so that if a user isn't supposed to have access to all of the passwords, they then could be assigned a subset of them, with out having to have multiple Password DBs with the some of the same info in both, which is totally against the true idea of a DB, which is a single point of DATA for all to access.
