Project Description
# keepassc and python-keepass

This provides command line and Python (both 2 and 3) interfaces for operating on
files in KeePass format v3 (used by [KeePass](http://keepass.info/)
1.x, and [KeePassX](http://www.keepassx.org/)) Note, this is not the
format used by the KeePass application version 2.x.

## Notes of caution

Before using this code, understand the its (known) security
and correctness limitations:

* Unlike the KeePass/KeePassX GUI applications this code makes no
attempt to secure its memory. Input files read in are stored in
memory fully decrypted.

* It is quite easy to display the stored passwords in plain text,
although the defaults try to avoid this.

* Specifying the master key on the command line will leave traces in
your shells history and in the process list.

* While input files are treated as read-only, keep backups of any
files written by KeePass/KeePassX until you are assured that files
written by this code are usable.

* Key files are not currently supported.

## Prerequisites and Installation

You will need to install the python-crypto package (providing the
"Crypto" module). On a well behaved system do:

```shell
sudo apt-get install python-crypto
```

If installing into a [virtualenv](http://www.virtualenv.org) this prerequisite will be installed for you:

```shell
virtualenv /path/to/venv
source /path/to/venv/bin/activate
cd python-keepass
python setup.py install
```


## Command line

The command line interface is run like:

```shell
keepassc [general_options] [command command_options] ...
```

Multiple commands can be specified and will be executed in order.
They operate on an in-memory instance of the database file. An
example,

```shell
keepass open -m secret file.kdb \
dump -p -f '%(username)s password is: %(password)s' \
save -m newsecret backup.kdb
```

Online help:

```shell
keepass -h # short usage
keepass help # full usage
```

## Python Modules

### Low level file access

```python
from keepass import kpdb
db = kpdb.Database(filename,masterkey)
print db # warning: displayed passwords in plaintext!
```

## The giants on whose shoulders this works stands

First, thanks to the original authors, contributors and community
behind KeePass and KeePassX. I am merely a user of KeePassX.

A big credit is due to rudi & shirou (same hacker?) for the following:

* <http: d.hatena.ne.jp="" rudi="" 20101003="" 1286111011="">
* <http: github.com="" shirou="" kptool="">

Looking through KeePass/KeePassX source made my head swim. Only after
reviewing their work could I get started.
