Password Manager

My biggest reason for using a USB flash drive is to carry a strongly encrypted file with all of the passwords that I'm likely to need and prone to forget. I have used KisKis (http://kiskis.sourceforge.net/) and have tried to use KeePass (http://keepass.sourceforge.net/).

I'm not sure either of these are the best of solutions, but I would be a huge advocate of portable apps if I could get a good portable password manager.

Big advocate. I'd tell all my friends, both of them. I'd get a t-shirt or something.

Whats your problem with Keepass?

Hi THG,

I am using Keepass for many months now and I don't understand what's your problem with it. It is really a superb piece of software - totally portable, easy to use, under very active developement (but really stable - author is implementing requested features and enhance usability further more), expandable via plugins and last but not least not dependent on Java as Kiskis.

The best is you download both Keepass and Kiskis and use both for some days and than deside for Keepass ;):D

PointSec Doesn't Like KeePass

KeePass does some tricks with its code that PointSec doesn't like. Anytime I try to run it on my corporate laptop, it generates an error message similar to:

attempted to call the function CreateFileA("C:\Program Files\KeePass Password Safe\KeePass.ini") from a buffer (the return address was 0x475064). The code at this address is '50ff75f0 ff75f4ff 7508ff15 bc724900 8bf03bf7 7514ff15 14734900 50e86d9c' This either happens when a process uses self-modifying code or when a process has been subverted by a buffer overflow attack. The operation was denied.

I'm KeePass is great, but if I can't use it on this machine, it does me no good.

KisKis is tolerable, but I've not tried running it from the USB drive.

Are you

Are you using the setup exe or the zip file. If you have used the setup exe it will try to write KeePass.ini to the path you have given. The zip file has a protable version that writes to the same folder as the executable.

If you download the zip file from the KeePass site (KeePass-1.04.zip)
here
http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=95013&package_id=1...

Extract to the folder you are using for KeePass on your Portable device

KeePass does have autofill

it uses a global hotkey that chooses the right username and password based on the current window's title. very useful, because i'm lazy too. sorry to respond to an old post, just thought i would point it out...

PasswordSafe

Another consideration is PasswordSafe (http://passwordsafe.sourceforge.net). I've been using it via USB drive for over a year with no problems. It's 2 files - the program itself and a compressed HTML help file. No installers or wizards.

The interface is very plain...not a lot of color and widgets and crap to clutter up the screen. Very functional.

I use Password Safe

I have been using password safe since before it became open source and I have never had any problems with it. I believe it is the easiest program out there, and it is supported by many open-source programmers making sure it keeps on the right track.

I recommend it to anyone. They are also coming out with a JAVA version if that is what you are looking into at all.

PortableKeePass

I have created a PortableKeePass version using a modified launcher from John and have successfully integrated it into the suite. I have turned off several features such as remembering the last opened file (in case the drive letter has changed) and have the launcher load the default database.kdb file that is stored in the data folder of the portable apps suite. So far it has worked perfectly. If anyone is interested, I can post it for download.

Hi there. Keepass in

Hi there.
Keepass in actually does recognize drive changes and tries it relative on my system.
I remounted the stick to a different drive and it worked again and openened the right file.
Did you check if it does not open the right file ?

Mine doesn't recognise drive

Mine doesn't recognise drive changes (zip install).

In addition, I don't succeed do have PStart pass the correct arguments for the commandline options within KeePass. I always have to navigate manually to open my DB-file which is in a different directory of the stick.

Anyone got KeePass and PStart cooperate and could post the correct syntax?

TIA
Chris

Always on the move - love all portable apps!

Hi.

I do not open it with any parameters.
I have set it up to open it with the last used database on the settings page.
That seems so far do the trick and opens my database, nevertheless on which drive we are.

Yadabyte - request

I like yadabyte passwords, very simple and to the point. It would be nice if you could implement a feature to load a URL and enter the password.

I'm new to All this Portable Stuff

But I love the idea of bypassing registries and all that. Takes me back to the days of the C64! I THINK I have just successfully installed Password Safe on my PA pen drive. Seems to work OK despite messages about not finding bits when installing. Time will tell. If it works it sure beats installing on every machine in the house and updating all the .dat files each time a change is made. Just one backup somewhere different.

It would be really nice if

It would be really nice if there was an app that had a randomizer based on a master pass. Is this in KeePass?

Password Manager

I see under Portable Application utilities that a password manager will be available soon. Does anybody know how soon?

No

but there are so many "Coming soon..."s there that either its the calm before the storm or the "Coming soon..."s are going to be there for (at least)weeks to come.

Password prompter...

...is a utility developed by PC World magazine. It stores passwords and just about any other text-based info you want. Ironically, it launches to a password screen itSELF - that is, the app itself is password-protected: You need to input a password to unlock the app itself and access the info stored therein. Pretty interesting. (If you don't wanna hafta give a password to access this info, just leave it blank the first time it launches, and press the return key).

Get it from PC world's website (haven't been there in a long while - I'm guessing it's pcworld.com or pcworldmagazine.com).
