If you use more than one computer (maybe with different SO) and manage lots of complex passwords (you should), you will need:
Conclusion: After some research I decide to use this combination of tools:: KeePass + DropBox
"Originally KeePassX was called KeePass/L for Linux since it was a port of Windows password manager Keepass Password Safe. After KeePass/L became a cross platform application the name was not appropriate anymore and therefore, on 22 March 2006 it has been changed."
The idea is installing KeePass and store the KDB file (the password file) in your DropBox.
The password file is synchronized across your machines, and can be opened by KeePass on Windows, or KeePassX in Linux or MacOs.
The password file is protected by usign a encryption algorithm considered safe (see http://keepass.info/help/base/security.html for more detaiils).
The sensible data remains encrypted in memory while in use.
"In order to generate the 256-bit key for the block ciphers, the Secure Hash Algorithm SHA-256 is used. This algorithm compresses the user key provided by the user (consisting of password and/or key file) to a fixed-size key of 256 bits. This transformation is one-way, i.e. it is computationally infeasible to invert the hash function or find a second message that compresses to the same hash.
The recently discovered attack against SHA-1  doesn't affect the security of SHA-256. SHA-256 is still considered as being very secure ."
Using auto-type functionality you can sign-in using your credentials in a fast and secure way. Watch the video:
Any comment or sugestion?
