Keepass Password Safe 2.06 beta Posted on Sunday, November 02 2008 @ 20:47:26 CET by Thomas De Maesschalck
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).
Translation system is now complete (translations to various languages
will be published on the KeePass
translations page when
translators finish them). When saving the database, KeePass now first checks whether the file on
disk/server has been modified since it was loaded and if so, asks the user
whether to synchronize with the changed file instead of overwriting it (i.e.
multiple users can now use a
shared database on a
network drive). Database files are now verified (read and hashed) after writing them to
disk (in order to prevent data loss caused by damaged/broken devices and/or
