Create a 'password safe' for online passwords
Authored by: el bid on Dec 06, '05 12:27:08AM

Agree. The Keychain stuff is an added level of complexity: I don't fully understand how it is supposed to work, or how it actually works. And I don't trust stuff I don't understand.

OTOH, creating an AES encrypted mountable image is simple to do, simple to understand, and therefore much more trustable. I would certainly prefer the encrypted images to be more portable between operating systems, but this is even more of a shortcoming in the case of Keychain.

How is the Keychain complex? You just use it. It has a nice gui. It just works.

It's probably the best example of easy-to-use power OSX has to offer.
