Why Is There No Good KeePass Client on OS X?

KeePass on WindowsI’m a big fan of KeePass. It’s a great tool for keeping and generating passwords in a small, encrypted, local database. While I generally gush about how amazing this tool is – I’m perplexed as to why there isn’t a great version of this tool on OS X. It doesn’t make sense that an operating system so powerful is so woefully underserved in this regard. As a daily OS X user, you too may wonder what the hell is up with KeePass on OS X, so let’s take a look. 

CWL Best: Keepass Fixes The Password Problem

keepass logoReality is, passwords aren’t going anywhere. I’ve mentioned Keepass before, and for good reason, Keepass is a great tool for managing passwords and storing them in a secure database. I would be limiting the scope of this great tool if I didn’t show you why Keepass deserves to be considered an indispensable tool. When you start to see what it can do, you may also describe it as THAT great tool.

Integrating KeeWeb With Dropbox for Data Access [How-To]

KeeWeb All Working in Browser

By now, if you’re new to using KeeWeb, you should probably have read my really basic intro to getting KeeWeb working from a place you host. You may have decided to host it on your own server or computer, but I thought putting it in Dropbox was a good primer for what’s next: Integrating this tool into Dropbox’s API and using that for storage. This can seem really complicated at first look, but I’ll show you that it’s not as bad as you think.

A warning: This is a densely populated list of instructions. My intention is for you to follow this list and hopefully succeed in building this solution.

Making a Super Basic KeeWeb Installation Work [How-To]

KeeWeb With Demo Data

The amazing web-based tool KeeWeb is perhaps one of the better ways to make Keepass databases work for you in a cross-platform environment. The challenge with using this tool, however, is that it’s not exactly the easiest to get running on your own hosting server. Yes, you can just go to app.keeweb.info, but if you want to try hosting it yourself somewhere, it may seem like a real challenge. For that reason, I wanted to offer some thoughts on how you get this thing up and running.

Don’t Blame the Millennial, Shadow IT loving, Tech Guy

Meet the business world’s riskiest user - Jeff

Just like medical journals, it seems like every new day brings some new report or another on the “state” of technology. Some reports are “nothing is secure, and you can never be secure“, while others take a more alarmist “secure everything” approach. I’m always sceptical when I hear of these things. They’re flashy, push people’s buttons, and generally feel like squeeze pages for a larger sales tactic. In fact, the first thing they should disclose is what they sell. At CWL we provide technology support services, so this topic is one that I’m acutely interested in. That said, there are often good things to glean from even the worst.

Bluepass – An Interesting New Password Manager

Bluepass LogoIf you use passwords, you should store them securely somehow. This generally saves you from losing something, and should help you improve the strength of passwords you already use on websites. I’m a big fan of the powerful tool named Keepass, but always on the lookout for new and interesting tools that might help us improve password storage and use. This search lead me to Bluepass, a new tool (like Keepass) that intends to have cross-platform support and a new syncing feature for your data. Bluepass is currently in its early stages and looking for support.

Apple’s WWDC Event 2013

WWDC 2013 LogoIf there is one event to cover every year, you couldn’t go wrong with an Apple event. Happening June 10 at 10am PST, Apple’s Worldwide Developer Conference is expected to draw the attention of everyone in tech seeking out what’s next in technology.  Right now, Apple is at somewhat of a disadvantage as products like Android are leaping ahead with new tools and wearable devices. Much of the speculation about this event revolves around a possible watch and a new iPhone.

Password Hashing Sites – A Safer Way to Use Passwords?

PassGen-2Recently, I’ve noticed a number of sites popping up with tools to make passwords more secure. The idea is that you go to the site, enter a few details, and the site generates a more secure password for that site. This allows you to have passwords that can be looked up, never stored anywhere and different for every site you use. As you’re probably aware, we like the password management tool Keepass for storing passwords – but what if you didn’t have to store them? What if you could easily remember a few phrases and generate unique passwords for each site you use based on those simple details? Beyond the safety of the service, it’s certainly an interesting idea.
