How does it work?
Secrets are generated on the fly using the same secure algorithm each time which uses a master password and a description of the password. Only the description of the secret is stored. This means the secrets are not stored anywhere.
The generation algorithm is PBKDF2 using 2048 iterations of HMAC-SHA-256, applied to (full name + master password) as the key and the description as the salt.
Since sometimes you cannot choose your passwords the application also has provision to securely encrypt secrets with the master password.
The command-line interface has the following commands
add Add a secret. diff Compare two stores. edit Edit a secret. encrypt Encrypt a secret. get Retrieve a secret. ls List the secrets. mv Relabel a secret. pull Retrieve a remote store. push Update the remote store. rm Remove a secret.
All commands and options are documented in the cli. You can use the
option with any command.
