Default Bug#618935: ITP: keepass2 -- password manager

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
Owner: Julian Taylor <jtaylor.debian@googlemail.com>

* Package name : keepass2
Version : 2.15 (not yet released)
Upstream Author : Dominik Reichl <dominik.reichl@t-online.de>
* URL : http://keepass.info/
* License : GPL-2+
Programming Lang: C#
Description : ITP: keepass2 -- password manager

KeePass2 is a free/open-source password manager or safe 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 algorithms AES or Twofish.

KeePass2 is a reimplementation of KeePass 1 based on .net. It runs very well
with mono and provides many more features than keepassx which is in already in
debian and is based on KeePass 1.

Hi,

we just received cpm[1] in testing. From its description it sounds to be
superior to keepass2. - And it does not require (evil?) C#.
Maybe cpm could serve your need and thus Debian wouldn't need to support an
additional package?

Best regards,

keepassx and keepass2 are interoperable with files from their counterparts on
proprietary OSs this is especially useful with dual boot installations sharing
the password database files. There is no port of cpm to cygwin (AFAICT).

cpm looks nice indeed but will cpm run on windows and macos?
keepass probably integrates better with GUI's thanks to its drag&drop and autotyping of passwords into forms.
It has a wide array of features and is constantly getting new ones.http://keepass.info/features.htmlThe documentation is excellent and it is translated into many languages.

It can export its database into many formats (xml, csv, html, arbitrary xsl transformations, ...).It has many plugins including one for command line scripting (although I have not yet tested it on debian).

Upstream is very active and supportive. There are regular releases with bugfixes and features since more than 6 years.
Also keepass is very widely used, it is currently top 30 most downloaded of last month, top 70 all time on sourceforge.

I think all these points warrant a little duplicate functionality in the archive.

Also keepass is in Debian stable, and it looks like it has been for a while.

As much as I like the ideas behind cpm, it unfortunately hasn't made
it to stable yet, and I am not sure how hard it would be to back port
it to stable. So I would agree, keep both for the moment.

At least cpm has made testing now, maybe there is hope... Oh, does cpm
have a website? I found
http://www.harry-b.de/dokuwiki/doku.php?id=harry:cpm, but that looks
seriously old, e.g. it refers to Sarge and Woody.
