Password Gorilla
Authored by: xsundeep on Dec 05, '05 12:19:27PM

How about Password Gorilla? We use it quite successfully where I work, and it totally platform-non-specific, so I use the same database on my solaris station as well as my mac and PC running XP via USB key... and it's free. Allows for passphrases, but also allows you to generate passwords and *paste* them into password fields...

(I have no connection with the software or its makers)

Also: (1) A caution... remember to not place stronger passwords in a password store with a weak passphrase... defeats the purpose, right?
(2) Another... make sure that you have a good copy backed up every so often...

Password Gorilla

Yes, it's free, but... TCL/TK bindings? Ugh. Can't stand looking at those widgets. Since we're evidently suggesting software, I will have to mention Selznick software's Password Wallet. Yes, you pay for it, but the interface is nicer than this gorilla, and you can sync it with a client program for your Palm, so you can carry your passwords (blowfish encrypted) with you whereever you and your Treo go. Spend less than $20 three years ago for it, and I've been super happy with it ever since. Well worth it.
