KeePass

I finally finished entering all my passwords into KeePass. I previously blogged about this here and here. So it looks like it took me a little over a month to get this done.

I see that the author of KeePass is working on a 2.0 version, rewriting it in .NET/C#. That’s pretty interesting; I’m curious to see if anyone will create a usable Mac version (running under Mono). Some of the features he’s including in 2.0 sound good too.

Now, I just need to come up with a viable way of keeping the database in sync between my PC and Mac. I may try doing it with FolderShare. I’m using that on my work PC and home PC right now, to keep some files in sync between the two, but not on my Mac. There may also be a way to keep the file in sync with .Mac; the challenge on that would be automating it on the Windows side, I think.

  1. If your looking for more portability, you might try an online service instead of something that you need to install on (and sync between) various machines.

    I know it just took you a month to get set up, but you can easily use KeePass’s export feature, then import into an online account.

    Trying can’t hurt. Both programs are free. You could even use them to supplement one another.

    PassPack will work in any browser on Windows, and Firefox on mac. So you’d be all set.
