I have a number of co-workers who use PasswordSafe and want to exchange passwords securely with them.
What would be involved in building a password exchange mechanism which encrypts the password using a one-time password, exports it as armoured ascii and places it on the clipboard. I could then email this to a co-worker (and tell them the password over the phone) and they could import it back into PS, using the one-time password to decrypt.
Is this doable? Would other users find it handy?
I know we could do this with GPG etc, but I'd rather not risk the user getting it wrong. If it were built into PS, I know they'd get it right!
Doable, but not trivial.
Perhaps a better approach would be to create a database containing all the shared passwords, and mailing this as-is?
This is the first request for such functionality. If more people ask for it, I'll see what I can do.
(you might want to enter this as an RFE - request for enhancement - to allow better tracking)
I can confirm that this feature would be very much appreciated. Password Safe is a great tool, but when my department (IT) got a request for a password storing and sharing app, my proposal of PS was rejected because we an app was needed that allowed sharing. A PHB decided to rather have this app developed in-house - by some suckup that only knows PHP (and is coding it thusly, going time 6+ weeks).
