    Difficult and somewhat unclear question, but does Password safe lean on some kind of standard/DPA (data protection act)?

      I apologize if this email goes to the entire list.

      I would like to be removed from this list, but the links below do not
      show that I have any subscriptions, so I cannot unsubscribe.

    Good question. I'm not sure what you mean by 'lean' on a standard or regulation, but PasswordSafe (a) follows best practices in data security and cryptography, (b) is Open Source, meaning that anyone can review the code and verify (a), and (c) has been adopted as the in-house password manager for several security-sensitive corporations in defense and financial sectors.

    As formal certification costs $$$, and this is a non-commercial effort, I think that this is good security value, regardless of the actual worth of such certification, which is not clear.
