http://live.pirillo.com/ – Managing and sharing password and sensitive information can be a hassle, especially if two or more people need to be kept up to date with account information. The solve this problem Chris found a great service called PassPack.
The first Online Privacy Manager. It’s a password manager and personal vault. With PassPack you can organize and store passwords, private notes, links and much more to come!
But is it a wise decision to store your information with PassPack? The truth is that your information will be kept pretty darn secure. PassPack uses multiple levels of security: anti-phishing filters, data packing, and disposable account information. To sum it all up:
With AES encryption (the same as used by the US Government) and an SSL Secure Connection, your data travels safely over the internet. But let’s suppose a hypothetical "bad-guy" gets into our servers, all he’d find would be a bunch of illegible data (Not even PassPack can read your data). If he’s determined to crack this data, he’d have to guess the Password and Packing Key of every single User, one-by-one, in order to reverse the packing process – to date, this type of brute force attack on AES is considered impossible. That makes PassPack an unattractive target.
It’s a great way to store your sensitive information and keep it secure.

Okay, well… I can’t say that my search has ended, but I think I found something that’ll be “good enough” until something better comes along. As I noted in my original post, I was looking for an ASP model for password management (although I suppose a “private” Web-based solution would likely be better). I don’t want a single binary, because I’m trying to share account information with Ponzi – which can’t be done effectively through anything other than a Web-based solution. Someone had commented on my blog about his new password storage tool, but that apparently disappeared into the ethernet – so I hope he comes back and comments in this thread. Here’s the winner: Password Safe. If you search for “manage passwords online,” it’s the number one result on Google. Seems like the perfect solution for me, though its interface is a bit tricky to navigate at first. I can’t find any competition to the product – at least one that’s easy to set up and get going for free. I hadn’t really heard of these guys before, but can’t find anything negative about them on the Web (at least, as far as security and password problems are concerned). Y’all asked for an update, so here you go. Oh – and I realized another thing: I’m far more forgiving with lackluster Web page UI than I am with desktop binary UI (don’t ask me why).
