I use unique passwords on all web sites. We all know to do this, and we
all know to use passwords that are as obscure as we can stand.
I keep my passwords in a locker, which is a Linux Unified Key Setup
(luks) filesystem. The filesystem image resides as a file in my home
directory, which I activate and mount whenever I need to get at a password.
To make a long story short: I have a script to manage all this, which I
include below. Folks who are interested in how luks works might find
this useful, as well as anyone wanting a password locker management script.
If you have suggestions or patches for this thing, I'm willing to figure
out how to get it on github. Folks who want a tarball can find it here:
Take a look at it. I use it as a sysv init script (where it lives in
/etc/rc.d/init.d), but it will work fine as a stand along script, too.
Anyway, script is attached as a text file.
Share and enjoy. :)
