Best Password Managers for Linux
By Jithin on August 4th, 2016
Password manager is a tool that helps to store your authentication details which is in encrypted and locked. To unlock the encrypted password, it requires a single password. Once it is unlocked then we have full access to all our authentication system. Password managers are for those who store their login credentials without any security or plain text.
KeePassX is a high demand password usage manager for Linux especially on secure personal data management. The KeePassX provides the storage facility for different and many information’s such as user names, passwords, urls, attachments and comments in one single database. For each entry we can modify the icons and tittles for better management and flexibility for the users. It also provides full database or a single database search facility using an integrated search function. The secure password generation is possible with a small utility. The database is under complete encryption with AES (Advanced Encryption Standard) or Twofish encryption algorithm using a 256 bit key. So the information stored are much safer. The databases in KeePassX is compatible with the Kee Password Safe. The KeePassX can setup a master password for the password manager while setting up.
2) GPassword Manager
GPassword Manager is a powerful cross platform highly used password manager which is more user friendly and easy to use interface than that of KeePassX. The features of the GPassword Manager that make it compatible for most high level computer users. In GPassword Manager we can easily access our most-used passwords/URLs from a simple desktop icon. GPassword Manager Utility uses crypto ++ encryption method which can be used in Windows and Linux. This feature avoids the conflict of the database used in different platforms without any assistance of any other software. GPassword Manager uses AES (Advanced Encryption Standard) encryption with Capability Maturity Model for more security and to authenticate the data.
3) My Passwords
