KeePass - A free open source password manager.
KeePass is a free, open source, light-weight and easy-to-use password manager for Windows, Linux, Mac OS X and mobile devices. You can store your passwords in a highly-encrypted database, which is locked with one master password or key file.
- Strong security (AES encryption, SHA-256 hash, protection against dictionary and guessing attacks, in-memory protection, ...).
- Portable (no installation required), available for many platforms (Windows, Linux, Mac OS X, smart devices/phones, ...).
- Efficient and flexible organization (entry groups, tags, time fields, file attachments, ...).
- Various data transfer methods (clipboard, drag and drop, auto-type, plugins can provide integration with other applications, ...).
- Powerful password generator (generation based on character sets and patterns, with many options).
- Extensible (plugin architecture) and multi-language (more than 40 languages are available).
Sure it can be useful, but there are a lot of extras that normal people will never use. Too many nobs to turn (and complex nobs as well for normal, everyday use)
Requires Microsoft's mushrooming .Net bloatware to be downloaded and installed, and you only find out when the KeePass installer has completed.
Keepass 2.1.5 is TERRIBLE on Debian Squeeze. The decision to use Windows as the major platform makes it TOTALLY UNUSABLE for me. I will bee sticking with KeePassX and KeePass 1.x for the foreseeable future. Ugly windows, ugly icons, ugly fonts, ugly controls. Not only that, Mono has a lot of catching up to do. I keep getting SIGSEGV (segmentation faults) as I use it. No, KeePass 2.x is not ready for prime time on Linux in my opinion, and will not be until it's rewritten properly. The dependence on Windows libraries is astounding, and sickening. I hate this project.
not the best in-town any more ;)
