I've gotten lots of suggestions for password keepers so far, thank you
so much! Alas, none
quite meet my needs.
- The latest Firefox has a new
password to encrypt passwords
It works pretty well, but two flaws. First, there's still no way to
get all your passwords. (You can view them in a window but can't copy
and paste them!) Second, the password store is only accessible if
their "this page has a password" heuristics work. If you're on a site like
MyWay where Firefox doesn't realize there's a password, there's no way
to store / retrieve one. Still, it's pretty good.
- Clever idea: have a master password that statelessly generates
passwords for different sites. Then roll the whole thing up in a
bookmarklet. Alas, it doesn't work in MSIE.
Same master password idea as the bookmarklet but in a Windows binary
with MSIE toolbar button. I'm not wild about the password generation
idea. You have no way to get a list of all your passwords, and you
have no way to change your password on one site without changing the
Standalone app that maintains a password database. This was originally
by Bruce Schneier's people as a Blowfish demo, now a SourceForge
project. I like the app pretty well but it has a bug with the text
export of its database. And the integration with MSIE is lacking.
If only there were Password Safe's transparency integrated
nicely like Mozilla or Password Scrambler.
