KeePass and smart card

  • Stefano Chiappini

    Hi all,
    I would like to know if it is possible to use KeePass with smart cards, I mean keeping on
    the smart card eihter the "kdb" file or simply the "pwsafe.key", in order to allow
    the access only with the card inserted in the reader.

    Could this be possible with simply the program options ? Or maybe wih a plugin ?
    Thank in advance you for any info/suggestion.

      I was also interested in this and found some info on the keepass website. KeePass supports multiple types of key providers through plugins.
      See and for technical details.

      There is no native support for smart cards.

      cheers, Paul

    I'm about to embark on a project to develop a KeePass plugin for this purpose: using chipcards as a replacement for key files.

    See the discussion thread here.
