Re: Debian Password Manager

You should have a look at the project 'PASSWORD SAFE'


An interesting point with this project is that BRUCE SCHNEIER is behind
it. Cryptographic software are not a easy thing and you need a lot of
knowledge to get a real security. I've not followed the original thread
about your soft and don't know who are in the Team but you should
certainly redirect your ressource on this project.

And debian in the name is not a good idea. For what I understand of your
project (which seems to be very similar to password safe) you need an
adoption from others softwares (mozilla, gnupg, ...) so restricting
yourself to debian is the wrong way.

To conclude you are clearly off topic here.

Good luck,
