Re: [PLUG] password safe

In my "Used at least 2-3 times in any week" collection, I have three laptops, one tablet, one phone, two desktops. LUKS container is fine for two of those three laptops and the two desktops, but I don't think Android speaks LUKS, and I know OSX doesn't speak it.

For me at least, this is why TrueCrypt was such a great solution, and why it's still in my toolkit. Nothing has truly replaced it yet, though some are getting close.

Maybe its me but I really don't get the need to use these things.  Years ago, I created a small "digital safe"- its just a LUKS container.  I keep anything I need to protect in it including security information. I can always move or copy it to another device as needed since it just a file.

So, my recommendation would be to use a LUKS container.  I realize this is more spartan and a bit off topic than the other solutions mentioned but I have other needs in addition to remembering passwords so other people might as well.

I use Password Safe (, even though the Linux port is still unstable, the cross platform password-gorilla  is file compatible with it and is available through apt on Debian/Mint/Ubuntu . The original author of Password Safe is Bruce Schneier. Since I'm mainly on Linux I guess I use Password Gorilla is really the answer.

Does anyone recommend a good password safe to use with Linux?
