http://www.keepassx.org/

Quote:
KeePassX saves many different information e.g. user names, passwords, urls, attachments and comments in one single database. For a better management user-defined titles and icons can be specified for each single entry. Furthermore the entries are sorted in groups, which are customizable as well. The integrated search function allows to search in a single group or the complete database.
KeePassX offers a little utility for secure password generation. The password generator is very customizable, fast and easy to use. Especially someone who generates passwords frequently will appreciate this feature.

The complete database is always encrypted either with AES (alias Rijndael) or Twofish encryption algorithm using a 256 bit key. Therefore the saved information can be considered as quite safe. KeePassX uses a database format that is compatibel with KeePass Password Safe. This makes the use of that application even more favourable.




It requires qt4-4.3.2.pet

Then download & install keepassX-0.4.3.pet.

Run via Menu->Personal->KeePassX

OK -- so I loaded the qt package and then keepass. But it won't launch. No errors to screen; can't find logs... Any ideas? Would love to have this working!

Thanks!

If you open a console, (Menu>Utility>Rxvt), then enter:

keepassx

what errors do you get?

I get keepassx: error while loading shared libraries: libQtGui.so.4: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

And I can't find any of the QT libs...where should they be? (Yes, I installed qt4-4.3.2 pet with the package manager...)

1. Does anyone know exactly what this is capable of?

2. Would it compete with what I normally use in both Windows and Puppy?
i.e. the PORTABLE version of Acerose Password Vault
This is held in the internal HDD E: partition, in a sub-folder of a folder holding ALL of the numerous portable programs I have.

(a) I run this in Windows by making a shortcut on the Start menu to [run] the exe file.

(b) I run it under WINE within BoxPup [or whatever puplet], by opening a terminal, typing the command winefile, and navigating the the location of the exe file on its previously mounted partition, and double-clicking the file.

3. The program does all kinds of good stuff.
(a) It encrypts the contents of course. [Secure]
(b) It auto-saves as many backup copies of the database file as you specify. [Safe]
(c) You can specify the location where you want the backup file held; for the portable version I normally keep them in the folder with the programs' files.
(d) You type a user name and password to enter the vault, so you can have different vaults for different users.
(e) Once in, there is a line for each entry, which can include a URL for a webpage. To launch the default web-browser and go to the web-page identified by the URL, you either double-click the entry-line, or click the "Launch" button.
(f) To view/edit the content for a line, you highlight the line, then right-click and choose "Edit".
You can then copy & paste info [username, password, etc] from that window to the boxes in the web-page.
(g) It can be used to generate passwords of a length you specify, and because you can copy& paste those they can be long and complex and still be easy to use.

@jeffklee,

I just downloaded & installed keepassx above. Then I used the package manager to uninstall the qt4-4.3.2 .pet. When I run keepassx from the commandline the error I get is:

Code:
keepassx: error while loading shared libraries: libQtXml.so.4: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory


If I the re-install qt4-4.3.2, when I run keepassx from commandline it opens without any errors. So I'm bamboozled as to why it won't work for you! Maybe try uninstalling qt4-4.3.2, re-downloading it directly from the repository, then re-installing.

@Sylvander,

I don't know...maybe the program you recommend is better...I don't actually use any of them! I just compiled it & uploaded in case it's of any use to others. Another little password program is Password Gorilla. You just need to also have tclkit installed for it to work.

I find a password vault a VITAL program to have in use.

It keeps secure and safe all those passwords that I'm told [by my bank for example] not to write down on paper.
e.g. The URL for my banking website is kept secure, so that there's practically no way it can be interfered with, even if my PC is hacked.

One of the major reasons I took to using Puppy was because it would make my banking [via my password vault] more secure.

Re-installing qt did the trick. Interesting thing is, I'd tried that already. However, on this go, the package manager returned a success dialog -- which it didn't the first two times...

Thanks!

Subject description: QT4 was not installed
 

I had the same error... QT was not installed. That of course fixed my problem.

I also have dropbox installed and that is where I keep the database as I run Keepass on several computers and my phone.

I had the same libQtxml problem as described above. I had to uninstall Qt 3 and Qt 4 before install Qt 4 again. After that erverything was OK.

Big thanks to muggins for providing these files and making the installation of Keepass a doddle, even for a complete Puppy noob. I've only been using Puppy (BrowserLinux 362) for two days - but I'm pretty sure that this is the solution that I'm going to be handing out on CD to family and friends for a more secure environment to do online banking in.
