KeePass 1.16

KeePass is a free open source password manager, which helps you to manage your passwords in a secure way. You can put all your passwords in one database, which is locked with one master key or a key file. So you only have to remember one single master password or select the key file to unlock the whole database. The databases are encrypted using the best and most secure encryption algorithms currently known (AES and Twofish).

I've been using this app, on both Linux and Windows, for some time now and it works very well.

What i don't like about the 2.x development of this app. Is that they are going to .Net framework to develop it.

Why is that a bad thing? They're saying .NET/Mono, so it should work fine on Linux as well...

i personally prefer 'Password Safe' ( http://passwordsafe.sourceforge.net/ )

this is also what 'Bruce Schneier' (security expert) recommends on his site. ( http://www.schneier.com/passsafe.html )

Password Safe protects passwords with the Twofish encryption algorithm, a fast, free alternative to DES. The program's security has been thoroughly verified by Counterpane Labs under the supervision of Bruce Schneier, author of Applied Cryptography and creator of the Twofish algorithm.

Well it's obvious that he recommends it, since he's the one who designed it.

KeePass also supports TwoFish
â€Â¢KeePass supports the Advanced Encryption Standard (AES, Rijndael) and the Twofish algorithms to encrypt its password databases.


Personally, I prefer KeePass. It's feature rich AND secure.

it may look like crap, but it gets the job done in terms of functionality.... that's the bottom line.

sure he might have designed it but at least he overseen it so you would assume it's better that way vs some random program who's coders etc might not be as trustworthy is what i'm saying ;)

plus, i might be wrong here as i know NOTHING about coding but... aint it basically true that the more complex a program becomes the more likely there are potential security flaws with it? ... so being that Password Safe is nice and 'simple' would that mean, at least in theory, it could be more secure than KeePass etc.?

but as they say... 'to each his own'.

p.s. yes i know KeyPass is open-source (so people can look at the code) so odds are it's safe but still ... i trust him since he's a security expert that everyone 'trusts'.
