Project Description

A CLI password manager.

pwmngr was designed with a few requirement :
* use a dead simple CLI interface
* have a readable text file as backend, that could be checked in a vcs, or
carried around the cloud.
* be secure.

security disclaimer

Disclaimer : this software was not written by a cryptography specialist, and needs to be checked-out by specialists.

However, this tool make use of proven algorithms : Passwords are encrypted using AES256, (courtesy of PyCrypto), with the encryption key being generated from your password, a random hash (different for each of your passwords) and the pbkdf2 key derivation algorithm.

The rationale is that you can encrypt all your password with the same master password, a different encryption key is generated for your passwords.


$ ./pwmngr -s
password file does not exist, do you want to create one ? [N/y]y
password to store : <mypassword>
password :<secret>
$ ./pwmngr -g
password :<secret>
pwd stored to clipboard
$ ./pwmngr -vg
password :<secret>

default password file is located at ~/.pwmngr
it's up to you to symlink or indicate alternative file with -f option.

usage: pwmngr [-h] [-f FILE] [-g] [-v] [-s] key

positional arguments:
key the key you want to set or retrieve [default action]

optional arguments:
-h, --help show this help message and exit
-f FILE, --file FILE the password file (default ~/.pwmngr)
-g, --generate generate a random password instead of prompting you
for the password when setting passwords
-v, --show default pwmngr store the clear password to clipboard.
if set diplay the clear password to stdout
-s, --set set a password
