What is KeePass?
Today you need to remember many passwords. You need a password for the Windows network logon, your e-mail account,
your website's FTP password, online passwords (like
website member account), etc. etc. etc. The list is endless. Also, you should use different passwords for
each account. Because if you use only one password everywhere and someone gets this password you have
a problem... A serious problem. The thief would have access to your e-mail account, website,
KeePass is a free open source password manager, which helps you to manage your passwords in a secure way.
You can put all your passwords in one database, which is
locked with one master key or a key file. So you only have to remember one single master password or
select the key file to unlock the whole database. The databases are encrypted using the best and most secure
encryption algorithms currently known (AES and Twofish). For more information, see the
Is it really free?
Yes, KeePass is really free, and more than that: it is open source (OSI certified). You can
have a look at its full source and check whether the encryption algorithms are implemented correctly.
As a cryptography and computer security expert, I have never understood the current fuss about the
open source software movement. In the cryptography world, we consider open source necessary for good security; we have
for decades. Public security is always more secure than proprietary security. It's true for cryptographic
algorithms, security protocols, and security source code. For us, open source isn't just a business model;
it's smart engineering practice.
