Forgiva Open Source Edition
For more information please refer to https://www.forgiva.com
Forgiva is a brand new password managing idea. It's developed by security professionals to maintain and protect passwords far more better than any other commercial solution available on the market.
- It never stores your passwords anywhere! There is nothing to crack.
- Resistant to key-loggers.
- Combines various hashing and encryption algorithms depending on your master-key. Thus makes very difficult to estimate an effective brute-force and/or dictionary attack.
- You can choose complexity depending on your paranoia level.
$ gem install forgiva
forgiva on the command line to run, and pick any password depending
on your favourite animal.

- 22.214.171.124 and 126.96.36.199 - Added scrypt support with -p/--scrypt option - Fixed various parameter parsing bugs
(Note: After 188.8.131.52 version, SCrypt support added)
Forgiva uses following digest and encryption algorithm to complex password generation phases:
Depending on data provided by the user Forgiva may or may not use all the encryption and hashing algorithms in an password re-generation process.
Algorithm uses 4 key data to generate password(s);
- Host (ex. google.com/facebook.com/192.168.0.1 etc.)
- Account (ex. email@example.com etc.)
- Renewal date
- Master key (SHA512 hash value of user entered key)
Forgiva generates hashes by keeping key-space stable. n-bits of data gets hashed to n-bits of data by dividing data into hash-size.
algorithm forgiva-hashing Input: Value to get hashed as DATA, Hashing algorithm HALG Output: Hashed input data if HALG.hash-size < data-size start_index = 0 end_index = HALG.hash-size while start_index < DATA size input_block = DATA content from start_index to end_index output_block = HALG.hash(input_block) result = result appended output_block start_index = end_index end_index = start_index + HALG.hash-size return result with the same size of DATA else return ALG.hash(DATA)
B. Iterative Hashing
Resembles hashing a value with various algorithms which are chosen by the characters of the value. Before getting into algorithm it must be understood that hashing algorithms are contained in an array and gets chosen by index number of it.
algorithm forgiva-iterative-hashing Input: Value to hashed as DATA, Algorithm array AARRAY Ouput: Hashed input data final_value = DATA for each character C in DATA algorithm = AARRAY index of (C code num modulus AARRAY) final_value = forgiva-hash(final_value, algorithm) return final_value
Encryption process with Forgiva is totally same with the algorithms except;
- Data block sizes gets fit into algorithm block sizes by padding zeroes or shortening.
- Encryption key gets put into PBKDF2_HMAC_SHA1 algorithm with 10_000 iteration and initialization vector (IV) is set as 'SHA512' value of encryption key.
D. Iterative Encryption
It's totaly same iteration-method used iterative hashing by using encryption algorithm array. As a different approach there is two input data and one will be used data to get encrypted and the other one will be used as key.
algorithm forgiva-iterative-encryption Input: Value to get encrypted as DATA, Value to used in encryption as DATA2, Algorithm array AARRAY Ouput: Encrypted input data final_value = DATA for each character C in DATA algorithm = AARRAY index of (C code num modulus AARRAY size) final_value = forgiva-encrypt(algorithm,final_value,DATA2) return final_value
Password generation process
1. Iterative hashing
Host, Account, Renewal Date and Master key gets into forgiva-iterative-hashing algorithm twice.
Output: Hashed Host -> HHOST Hashed Account -> HACCOUNT Hashed Renewal Date -> HRDATE Hashed Master Key -> HMKEY
2. Iterative encryption
Hashed datas gets into forgiva-iterative-encryption process as pairs and finally whole encryption phase reduces into one result.
algorithm forgiva-encrypted-inputs Input: Hashed Host as HHOST, Hashed Account HACCOUNT, Hashed Renewal Date HRDATE, Hashed Master Key as HMKEY Output: Encrypted result as DATA first_pair_pre = forgiva-iterative-encryption(HHOST, HACCOUNT) first_pair = forgiva-iterative-encryption(first_pair_pre, HMKEY) second_pair = forgiva-iterative-encryption(HRDATE,HMKEY) return forgiva-iterative-encryption(first_pair,second_pair)
3. Password derivation
Forgiva uses PBKDF2-HMAC as base of the key-derivation family and uses forgiva-encypted-inputs as salt mechanism.
Depending on choices of the complexity it uses SHA1 (Normal),SHA256 (Intermediate) and SHA512 (Advanced) hashing algorithms.
Note: After 184.108.40.206 Algorithm; SCrypt support added
algorithm key-derivation Input: forgiva-encrypted-inputs as SALT, SHA512 value of master key as KEY Output: Array of password sized of animal count hash = KEY if scrypt_required hash = scrypt(hash,SALT,131072,8,1) // n = 2^7 , p=8, r=1 for each Animal hash = PBKDF2_HMAC_SHA1(hash,SALT, 10.000 iterationg with 32 bit key expectation) password = forgiva-hash-to-password(hash) push password to return animal array
3.1. Hash to password conversion
Due to choice of complexity Forgiva uses different character-ranges to generate a good password by using hashes.
algorithm hash-to-password Input: Hashed value as DATA, characters which will be used in password as CHARACTER_ARRAY Output: 512 bit of data as KEY temporary_hash = SHA512(DATA) for each character C in temporary_hash password += CHARACTER_ARRAY index of (C code num modulus CHARACTER_ARRAY size) return password
