General Software Discussion / fSekrit as open source ?
« on: April 26, 2008, 04:20 PM »
fSekrit might be ok, if it were open source !

- i have hard time trusting non open source program my passwords, especially when it says passwords can be trusted
  eg. program could make sure people save passwords using it, them deliver over net to some bad guys
  1) i can't have 100% trust in program author 2) program could be hacked, program modified
- it would be more secure, if it were open source, multiple variants using different tricks
  "A skilled malicious person *could* theoretically snoop the key and use it to decrypt your data"
  unskilled malicious person *could* achieve same thing - with a help of some software...
  more versions, lower possibility of such universal software.
