A cli password management tool

Project description

Hello fellow person,

nixpass was created to help organize, generate, and store passwords. It allows password workspaces to be encrypted with AES-256 and decrypted with a single password, giving access to all entered credentials within that workspace.

Work flow was designed to create organized spaces called password files. The designed workflow is as follows:


which has entries


-username -password


-username -password

These entries are stored in JSON format, encrypted with AES-256, encoded with base64 and written to a file.

To open a workspace, enter the name of the Workspace and authenticate. This will decode and decrypt the JSON in the file that has all the entries.

To view the username/password of a password file entry, enter the entry name:


This will provide the username/password

foo bar
