Me along with most of the employees that work on the computers want to have very strong passwords (multiple people work on one computer during the 14 hour shift). I've been asked by most of my friends at work if I can find out about a good program that would allow my friends to keep their passwords on a Flash Drive. We have different passwords for every program that we use. Of course I have access to everyones passwords (lol, gotta love being a network administrator. I work with the network servers, repair the computers, and deal with the everyday problems of Linux, XP, and the multiple programs we use every day). What we're looking for is a program that is small enough to be put on a flash drive but be able to keep a database of every password we have. Most of them ask for a program that they can use that all they have to do is go into the Flash Drive, click on the password, and be able to access the program with out having to remember the password. I stated that I highly doubt that and that the best thing that they could do is make a strong password and put them into a database, save it onto a flash drive, secure that file (encrypt it....blowfish CSS...FTW), and copy and paste the password. If the program is possible and there is one out there we would love to know about it. Free programs are prefered. If you can provide a link that would be great.

Ask your local sysadmin for a small application that polls a database (say MySQL for a example)... And divide up the database with sections depending on the user? But personally I say, What's the point in having security if you have all passwords saved on a floppy/flash drive/etc?

Such programs do exist, if I recall correctly. Keepass Safe, for instance. I seem to remember flash-drive specific applications which do almost exactly what you want (short of logging in to the programs for them - no program could do that without being specifically coded to do so). The best place to look would be SourceForge.

Well thank you. I've told him about it and we've got a good program. Thanks yall. Hopefully keep the little pisshead from messing up our network system. See the other thread I started talking about some other programs we're looking for.

The most secure thing to do would be to require the user to type in a password, and connect a flash-drive. This would create a dual authentication system.
