Encrypted password repository with a master password
here's an idea for future development.
I like Mozilla's approach to saving passwords - if I set a master password to the password storage, saved passwords are encrypted and cannot be decrypted without the master password.
What bugs me though, is that I have to enter the master password each time my Firefox starts.
My list of saved connections in WinSCP (FAR plugin) is pretty long and contains all sorts of sites where I don't want to store my public ssh key, or where I'm forced to use plain FTP connections (yuck).
I don't feel good about saving passwords when they can be decrypted but hell, I'm lazy and I'm not going to copy/paste the passwords from my Secret! Desktop (http://linkesoft.com/secret/desktop.html).
It would be great if you could implement a password storage much like Mozilla has. But that wouldn't be enough for me :-)
Since you already work with PuTTY Pageant very well, you could use it's ssh key as the master password. I would then only need to enter the passphrase into Pageant and it would unlock my saved passwords in WinSCP. Nifty, huh?
Now I know this is a lot of work so I'm willing to put some money into this. Could you please contact me at petr.pavel zavinac/at pepa.info if you're interested? I'm not a company so please don't expect much.
P.S.: And of course, thanks very much for all your hard work. It is appreciated every day.
Life is what you make it.
