NAME
    passmanager - Command-Line Shared Password Store

VERSION
    version 1.113580

SYNOPSIS
     $ passmanager --help
     Available commands:
 
       commands: list the application's commands
           help: display a command's help screen
 
           init: initialize git repository and passphrase files
        newuser: provision a new user, or reset a user passphrase
           open: browse and edit the password repository

DESCRIPTION
    This program manages one or more password stores which can be securely
    shared and edited amongst a team. Each team member maintains their own
    passphrase to access a password store.

    Individual user passphrases can be changed and new users added. The
    password store is a simple XML format which can easily be read by humans
    or the XML::Simple Perl module, and is maintained in a Git repository.

USAGE
    The program "passmanager" takes three commands as shown in "SYNOPSIS",
    above. These allow you to initialise a new password store, access the
    store, and add a new user to an existing store.

    There can be multiple password stores (a default name is provided, or
    overridden on the command line), and they are stored in a Git repository
    (obviously, as binary files due to the encryption).

    Use the "--help" flag to see what options are available. In general you
    can set the location of the Git repository, the name of the password
    store, and your own username. Each of these has sane defaults shown in
    the help text.

PASSWORD HIERARCHY
    A three tier system is provided to help organise passwords. The names of
    the tiers have no special meaning - you can group passwords however you
    wish. The first two tiers, called Categories and Services, are simply
    containers. The third tier, Entries, holds multiple password details.

    *   Category

    *   Service

    *   Entry

    Categories and Services have only a title. The password Entry itself has
    a tile, username, password, and comment field. In each case the title is
    required, and for entries, either of the username or password is
    required.

INITIAL SET-UP
     $ passmanager init

    Call the initialisation command as shown, and you will be prompted for
    your own passphrase (twice) and the master passphrase for the store
    (also twice). Then the Git repository will be initialised and you are
    shown the password management interface.

    Subsequently, run the application with the "open" command and you will
    be prompted for your own passphrase:

     $ passmanager open

    Use the "--help" flag to see what options are available. In general you
    can set the location of the Git repository, the name of the password
    store, and your own username. Each of these has sane defaults shown in
    the help text.

THANKS
    My thanks to Guy Edwards who collaborated on the original version of
    this application.
