======================================== Keys - A command line password manager by Franco Bersani franco.bersani@gmail.com ======================================== Keys is a little, but enough powerful, password manager for linux systems. It base its security around strong GPG tecnology. Keys is merely a bash script that used internal bash commands and externals ones. Keys depend on: - Bash - GnuPG2 - shred - ssh - sftp - xsel - tree - rdesktop - xdotool [WHAT KEYS DO] keys is a password manager with ncurses interface. It is merely a bash script based on gnupg2 and dialog that use external commands (rdesktop, xdotool, xsel, ssh sftp) in order to open remote connections (rdp, ssh/sftp), or open and logon to WebSites with provided credentials, or even memorize generic Account credentials. The xdotool package provides auto-typing functionality. Keys stores credentials in gpg-encrypted files (DB Keys), structured in subdirectories. In this way, the catalogue present in keys accurately reflects the position of the individual 'DB Keys' in the file system. You can always open your 'DB Keys' with standard gpg2 decrypting com‐ mands. [TRANSLATIONS] Keys is currently translated in Italian and English. If you want keys in your language, or if you want to improve it or en translations, your help is welcome! [INSTALLATION FOR DEBIAN/UBUNTU] Download and install the latest deb binary. [INSTALLATION FOR FEDORA] Download and install the latest rpm binary. [INSTALLATION FOR OTHER SYSTEMS Download the latest tarball [binary] file, become root and cd to your "/" directory. Then, uncompress the tarball. [FIRST RUN] Keys was designed to be as stress-free as possible. The first time it runs on your machine, it checks if you have the essentials binaries installed on your system, trying to help you if something is missing. It also write for you a default configuration file (stored in .keysrc into your HOME directory). What you have to do is to READ CAREFULLY what the script is asking you. :-) [TIPS] Keys stores the 'DB key's in a real folder in your pc. [BEWARE!! If you delete that folder, you'll lost all your passwords.] Keys permits to create 'Labels' that are, at filesystem level, directories. In this way, you can modify Labels name and 'DB key's name, or move and delete them, with standard rename, move and delete commands at filesystem level. Keys provides an online help, and also a man page. Further, togheter with keys you can find an utility (export-key) that permits to export a 'DB Key' created with 'keys' and sign the exported 'DB Key' with a different gpg2 public key. With export-key you can distribuite securely passwords to others, using their gpg public keys [WHAT NEW] Beginning from version 1.0.1 keys runs well also in Qubes-OS enviroments (also vith gpg-split configuration).
