Welcome to Cryptopus
Cryptopus is a ruby on rails web application for storing and sharing passwords and other sensitive data. All data is stored encrypted in a database, safe from third party access.

- Store usernames, passwords and further descriptions
- Attach files
- Data will be encrypted, including the attachments
- There is no shared master password
- Users can form groups
- Passwords can be shared within groups
- LDAP authentication
Please remember that putting all your passwords together in a database and making this database accessible over the internet might be a relevant security threat. The passwords and keys are only as safe as the host that is running cryptopus and the SSL-secured connections (never use an unencrypted connection!), as well (and this is the most important point) as the strength of your main password.
So calculate the risk this setup might pose and choose a good password. Cryptopus won’t make your passwords more secure! It simply gives you the possibility to manage them in a nice way, store them in a safe manner and share them with other people if you wish to do so.
Under no circumstances can we ever be held liable for password theft, lost passwords or any other inconvenience caused by using cryptopus. Please read this paragraph three more times, it’s important!
- Ruby 2.2.1
- libmysqlclient-dev, mysql-client
- optional: LDAP as a user directory
Setup Development Environment
on Ubuntu execute the following command to install system requirements:
sudo apt-get install sqlite3 mysql-client libmysqlclient-dev libqtwebkit-dev
Install RVM (Ruby Version Manager):
Visit https://rvm.io for further installation guidance. The simplest way to install RVM is as follows:
First get the current gpg-key from https://rvm.io and replace XYZ in the following command with the key:
gpg --key-server hkp://keys.gnupg.net --recv-keys XYZ
\curl -sSL https://get.rvm.io | bash -s stable
Change to the directory where you want to put cryptopus and clone the repository:
git clone git://github.com/puzzle/cryptopus.git
Install Ruby and the Ruby-Bundler:
rvm install 2.2.6
gem install bundler
Build Cryptopus with the bundler:
Create and initialize the database:
Start the Rails server:
Browse to https://localhost:3000
and login with default credentials: user = "root" and password = "password"
Try before Install
Instead of installing Cryptopus you can easily test it with Docker:
- Install Docker
- Build Docker image:
docker build -t cryptopus
- Run Docker container:
docker run -it --rm --name cryptopus -p 3000:3000 cryptopus
- Execute rake:
docker exec cryptopus rake db:migrate
- Visit localhost:3000 in your browser
Mock + RPM + Puppet
If you have a mock buildserver you can build an RPM of cryptopus with the script in the config/rpm directory
You can integrate this in Jenkins if you want. This RPM can then be deployed with the Puppet Manifests found here:
This Puppet class automaticaly deploys the vhost configuration including environment variables needed for the database.
