Keybox

DESCRIPTION:

Keybox is a set of command line applications and ruby libraries for secure password storage and password generation.

FEATURES/PROBLEMS:

Provides the following command line applications

  • keybox - a pure ruby command line password storage application using

    the embedded OpenSSL included with ruby for encryption.
  • kpg - a pure ruby implementation of the Automated Password Generator

    (apg) program. It attempts to implemented all the functionality
    of 'apg', but it is not completely compatible.

The full functionality of the command line applications is also available via included ruby libraries and could be embedded in other applications.

        -v, --version                    Show version information

REQUIREMENTS:

For running:

  • For a gem install keybox depends upon HighLine >= 1.2.6.

  • For a source install keybox ships with HighLine 1.2.6

For development:

  • rake >= 0.7.1

  • rcov >= 0.7.0.1

  • RedCloth >= 3.0.4

  • rspec >= 0.7.3

  • rubyforge >= 0.4.0

  • webgen >= 0.4.1

  • highline >= 1.2.6

To run the RSpec test, you have to remove the termios library if it is installed. stdin, stdout, and stderr are redirected and this doesn't play well with termios in highline.

INSTALL:

  • gem install keybox

CREDITS:

keybox is inspired by:

kpg is based on the functionality of 'apg' or Automated Password Generator. Automated Password Generator was was originally developed by Adel I. Mirzazhanov and can be found at www.adel.nursat.kz/apg/
