I use passwordsafe. I like it a lot -- can't imagine how I lived
without it. (See http://passwordsafe.sourceforge.net/)
The one problem I have with it is backing up my password database -- I
can't decide if I should have enough confidence in the security of it to
keep a backup in a relatively public location like my personal ISP
account, which is private but not *that* private. I believe that the
security of your password file rests on a sha1 hash of your password.
Is that good enough? Anybody have advice on that?
