password managers

Has anyone had any luck with using password managers like pass (
http://www.passwordstore.org/ ) or keepass(2|x)?

I primarily interested in using pass - it has a firefox plugin, which,
when install.rdf is edited, installs in conkeror, but it's not clear to
me if it actually works or not.

I use keepassx it does what it supposed to do but has no conkeror
plugin.

Recently especialy for websites I like supergenpass, it uses a
masterpasswort from you and the domain name to generate a 10 letter hash
passwort.

So you dont have to sync any passwort files. there are clients for
android, firefox, chrome and emacs :) also normal cli client. (and
shurly also macstuff and windoof)

sadly there is no conkeror integration but there is no integration for
keepass too so whatever.

So for supergenpass you just use the emacs client (for instance) to
input the master password and website address and then it outputs the
generated site-specific password which you copy into the password field?
Something like that?

Hi Ben,

I used to use the following to integrate pass with Conkeror:

// pass
interactive("run-pass-clipboard-on-current-domain",
    "Runs 'pass -c' on the current domain.",
    function (I) {
        var domain = I.buffer.document.domain;

        // filter possible 'www.'
        domain = domain.replace("www.", "");

        var result = yield shell_command_with_argument("pass -c", domain);

        if (result == 0) {
            I.buffer.window.minibuffer.message("Retrieved password for " +
domain + ".");
        } else {
            I.buffer.window.minibuffer.message("Failed to retrieve 
password for " + domain + ".");
        }
    });
define_key(default_global_keymap, "C-c C-p", 
"run-pass-clipboard-on-current-domain");

Your pass entries must be named correctly for this to work. So for
something like gmail you have to pay attention to the domain on which
you actually have to login. In the case of gmail that's
accounts.google.com so the entry in your password store must be named
accounts.google.com.gpg.

Apart from that it works pretty well, just run the function and the
password should be on your clipboard.


Kind regards,
Joren
