passwords - an embarrassingly simple password safe Highlights: - Functional: stores all your passwords in a single, encrypted file - Secure: 256-bit AES encryption - Verifiable: less than 300 lines of Scala code - Durable: backup ~/.passwords with Dropbox, or email, or whatever - Free: MIT license The goal of this program is to be moderately more user friendly than storing passwords in a plain text file encrypted with GnuPG, while at the same time being short and simple enough that any competent programmer can convince themselves of its correctness in under 30 minutes. Example usage: $ passwords > help Commands: generate [length] add <url> <username> remove <url> <username> list search <search string> merge <other file> > generate g9mYO:=[ > add https://www.mint.com/ johndoe No existing passwords database. Enter a master password: Confirm master password: Password: <copy/paste "g9mYO:=[" from above> > search mint https://www.mint.com/ johndoe g9mYO:=[ > remove https://www.mint.com/ johndoe Really remove this entry? (Y/N): y > quit Installation instructions for MacPorts/Debian/Ubuntu: 1. Download and install git and sbt: apt-get install git sbt # Debian/Ubuntu port install git sbt # MacPorts 2. Download and install this program: mkdir -p ~/src cd ~/src git clone git://github.com/srhea/passwords.git cd passwords sbt compile export PATH=$PATH:$HOME/src/passwords/bin Notes: I wrote passwords in Scala because of the languages I know well, Scala produces shorter, more readable code than C++, and I trust Scala's cryptographic primitives more than those in Ruby. If you're using Java 7 and getting mysterious errors, you may need to download the "Java Cryptography Extension (JCE) Unlimited Strength Jurisdiction Policy Files". You can find those files and instructions on how to install them here: http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/downloads/jce-7-download-432124.html On Mac OSX, JAVA_HOME is a little wierd. To install the unlimited strength cryptography extensions on OSX, unzip the file downloaded from the link above, cd into the unzipped directory, and then run this command sudo mv *.jar `/usr/libexec/java_home`/jre/lib/security/ Enjoy!
