KeePass Password Safe
KeePass Password Safe is a secure password manager that allows you to store your sensitive login information in an encrypted database. It allows you to organize your entries into categories and offers several ways to conveniently enter your username/password; you can use drag and drop, copy to the clipboard, or create auto-type sequences that can enter the login information with a single click. The program also includes support for TAN passwords and allows you to create TAN lists which automatically expire a password once it has been used. Other features include password generator, auto-lock, database search, import/export, and more.

Today you need to remember many passwords. You need a password for the Windows network logon, your e-mail account, your homepage's ftp password, online passwords, etc. etc. etc. The list is endless. Also, you should use different passwords for each account. Because if you use only one password everywhere and someone gets this password you have a problem... A serious problem. The thief would have access to your e-mail account, homepage, etc. Unimaginable
KeePass is a free/open-source password safe or manager, which helps you to manage your passwords in a secure way. You can put all your passwords in one database, which is locked with one master key or a key-disk. So you only have to remember one single master password or insert the key-disk to unlock the whole database. The databases are encrypted using the best and most secure encryption algorithms currently known (AES and Twofish).
KeePass features an "Auto-Type" functionality. This feature allows you to define a sequence of keypresses, which KeePass can automatically perform for you. The simulated keypresses can be sent to any other currently open window of your choice (browser windows, login dialogs, ...).
2. Command Line Options
Command line options to automate KeePass tasks.
3. Composite Master Key
KeePass stores your passwords securely in an encrypted file (database). This database is locked with a master password, a key file and/or the current Windows account details. To open a database, all key sources (password, key file, ...) are required. Together, these key sources form the Composite Master Key.
KeePass supports multiple locations for storing configuration information: the global configuration file in the KeePass application directory, a local user-dependent one in the user's private configuration folder, and an enforced configuration file in the KeePass application directory. The first one is called global, because everyone using this KeePass installation will write to the same configuration file (and possibly overwriting settings of other users). The second one is called local, because changes made to this configuration file only affect the current user.
5. Field References
KeePass can insert data stored in different entries into fields of an entry. This means that multiple entries can share a common field (user name, password, ...), and by changing the actual data entry, all other entries will also use the new value.
6. Import / Export
KeePass 2.x supports importing data from CSV files (all), KeePass 1.x (KDB, XML and CSV), KeePass 2.x XML, 1Password Pro, Alle meine Passworte, Any Password, CodeWallet, FlexWallet, Mozilla Bookmarks, PassKeeper, Passphrase Keeper, Password Agent, Password Depot, Password Exporter, Password Gorilla, Password Keeper, Password Memory, Password Safe, Passwort.Tresor, Personal Vault, PINs, RoboForm, Security TXT, SplashID CSV, Steganos Password Manager 2007, Whisper 32, and Spamex.com.
To quickly switch back from an application to KeePass, you can use the global hot key that restores the KeePass main window.
Both KeePass 1.x and 2.x allow multiple users working with one database, which is typically stored on a shared network drive or a file server.
9. Password Generator
This password generation method is the recommended way to generate random passwords. Other methods (pattern-based generation, ...) should only be used if passwords must follow special rules or fulfill certain conditions.
10. Secure Edit Controls
KeePass was one of the first password managers featuring secure edit controls. The edit controls used in KeePass are resistant to password revealers and password control spies. Additionally, the entered passwords are protected against memory dumping attacks: the passwords aren't even visible in the process memory space of KeePass!
KeePass database files are encrypted. KeePass encrypts the complete database, i.e. not only your passwords. The user names, notes, etc. are encrypted, too.
12. TAN Support
KeePass supports TANs, i.e. passwords that can be used only once. These special passwords are used by some banks: you need to confirm transactions using such TANs. This provides additional security, as a spy cannot perform transactions, even if he knows the password of your banking account.
13. URL Field Capabilities
The URL field can execute any valid URL, for which you have defined a protocol handler. On most systems at least the , ftp:// and mailto: protocols are defined. KeePass supports all registered protocols that Internet Explorer supports.
14. Using Stored Passwords
There are many different methods to copy passwords stored in KeePass to other applications.
