Network Clien/Server based Password Management System?
« on: January 11, 2007, 02:03:11 AM »
somewhat related to the helpdesk thread, does anyone know of a good multi-user client/server based network password manager?
We have to store countless passwords for the various systems we look after. We currently use an inhouse webfront onto a sql database, built using ms sharepoint, but this isn't as stable as we'd like with adding new passwords.
The advantage is that we can access the website from any pc with an internet connection.
Does anyone know of any similar products?

A few of us here are RoboForm fans (I am).  I've not used it in client server situation though.  They have a page on business use: http://www.roboform.com/enterprise.html

But it sounds like to use it in this fashion youd have to have the data file on a mounted network drive.  Not sure if that's suitable for you.

I prefer keepass.
You could make it have the passwords file in your server and then acess it via ftp.

If you only have a few passwords, you might look at fsekrit wich would allow you to create an encryptable plain text file and have it in your server. It's the most portable solution because it doesn't envolve any instaling of programs on the client machine you can just download the passwords file (which would be only a few KB in size), excecute it, insert password and get access to all your passwords. As soon as you closed it, it'd get protected again.

I think the point here is to have a password program where passwords are automatically synchronized between clients..  It's possible keepass can be set up this way, i'm not sure.

Oh, i misunderstood the post. I thought it was only supposed to acess the encrpyted database at the server through ftp without changing it. But apparently, no even that is possible, you'd have to download it, and then delete it.

Sorry Guys, i should've been more clear.
the password database would be centralsied, preferably with there being no way to save it locally.
it would need to support multi-user access, with users being able to update passwords simulateously (unlikely to be the same password)
a web interface, so that we could host it and have it accesable would be a plus but no essential.
We also have a terminal server that is accessible through the browser. this is more cumbersome though.
We don't need a fancy autofill-any-application you have open type app. Mainly for security reasons.


keepass looks very nice but i don't think it really fits the multi-access client/server model.

I've come across www.traysafe.com which for applicaions, looks to be the best of a bad bunch. Don't know how easy it is to actually set up though.

This seems to be something closer to what you're looking for:

I haven't tried it, so I'm making no assertions about whether it's good or bad.

I've been sent a pm regarding a program called www.passtrix.com. it's a website based solution using mysql and apache. This way we can access the database from anywhere (as long as we publish the web address)

there is a free version available, with the following limitations;

a maximum of 1 Technician* in your network
and you can manage up to a maximum of 10 resources.
The Free Edition never expires and you get all the functionalities of the Professional Edition except technical support.

a technician is a user with administrator or supervisor priviledges.
a normal user only has read-only access to the site.

Pricing isn't too bad.

Product License Fee Annual
   
SecureCentral PassTrix Release 4
Annual Subscription Fee For 2 Technicians (Unlimited Resources) $195     
Annual Subscription Fee For 5 Technicians (Unlimited Resources) $395   
Annual Subscription Fee For 10 Technicians (Unlimited Resources) $795   
Annual Subscription Fee For 20 Technicians (Unlimited Resources) $1,295   
Annual Subscription Fee For 25 Technicians (Unlimited Resources) $1,495   
Annual Subscription Fee For 50 Technicians (Unlimited Resources) $2,495

theere is an online demo of it here: http://demo.passtrix.com/
