Storage for passwords, encrypted with GPG
Keybox is a secure store for keys, passwords and other secrets.
There is Python API (import keybox), a runnable package (python3 -m keybox) and wrapper script (keybox, created by setuptools).
Keybox is completely offline. All secrets stay safe in local file. Nothing is sent anywhere, unless you explicitly set up network synchronization using some other tool.
- Data encrypted using strong encryption (GPG file)
- Simple tab-delimited file format
- Shell-like text user interface
- Master password is saved in memory for as long as the program runs.
- Neither the password nor decrypted data are ever written to disk.
- The script should run on any system with Python3 and GPG installed.
- Requires no installation. You can bring your keybox with you anywhere.
- Can be contained in single Python file (see Static Distribution bellow)
- POSIX OS
- Python 3.4 or later
Install Python package together with keybox script:
python3 setup.py install
The package can be run directly, without installation:
python3 -m keybox
/usr/share/dict/words (for pwgen, provided by ``wamerican`` on Debian)
Run the program, type master password. New keybox file will be created.
You are now in the shell. The basic workflow is as follows:
- add some passwords
- list the records
- select a record
- print the password
See help for list of all commands.
Bundled password generator can be called from command line (keybox pwgen) or internally from shell. Try <tab> when asked for password (add command).
Pwgen is based on system word list usually found in /usr/share/dict/words. By default, it makes password from two concatenated words, one uppercase letter, one digit and one punctuation character.
This gives around 50 bits of entropy on my system. 
Call make zipapp to create  file containing all sources. Zipapp file is written to dist directory and is directly executable by Python.
The make target uses zipapp module which is available since Python 3.5. When created, the zipapp archive is executable by older interpreters (Python 3.4).
Download the file for your platform. If you're not sure which to choose, learn more about installing packages.
