  • What is your go-to password manager for Linux, and why did you choose that one?

    I use gopass, because it is pass compliant and supports multiple recipients / teams which was my initial usecase for it. Just ask if you have any questions about my usage of it!
  • Yubikey/gpg password encryption

    I'm currently using passwordstore/gopass for password management. It uses my GPG key to encrypt the passwords. The GPG key lives only only my Yubikey. The Yubikey requires a touch for each decryption.

    That's true, the simple & fast UI (TUI/GUI) helps a lot. However, I would not extrapolate it to a huge problem. I am person, who have written own pass/passage implementation [0], just because I disliked how many steps I need to make to select the password for the form input, modify it or sync secrets.

    Initially, I had used the `gopass`. It is probably the most convenient way to start using the password-store. It is cross-platform, 100% compatible with pass & pass-otp. To copy the password, you basically type the part of the file you are looking for. If you type "gopass show github", it will display a TUI, where you can select the file you are looking for (let's say you have two files "personal/" and "work/"). Unfortunately, the search function was far from perfect, and it had a problem with typos like "gtihbu" at the time, when I was using it.

    To get rid of this issue, I decided to adapt pass/gopass to use `fzf` [2]. In the same time, my .password-store/ dir was rapidly growing that made me think about implementing pass from scratch. I improved the implementation to have better caching, synchronization between machines/mobile, but more importantly - a simple `secret [arg]` command that will execute `fzf` to list all known creds and simplify selection of the password. Of course, it accepted an argument that was limiting the results, which is great when you need to get back to the previous credential to retype something.

    The introduction of `fzf` made it really convenient, and I decided to add more commands with fuzzy search, such as:

    - `otp` - limits results files containing TOTP/HOTP token, calculates and copies it to the clipboard.

    - `secret-edit`, `secret-remove`, `secret-show`... aliases to sub-commands that open `fzf` command in multi-selection mode, so by utilizing space key I could select what files are meant to be modified, removed, displayed etc. Quite handy for mass-edit.

    - `secret-qr` - similar to the gopass' feature, but it made a simplified way to create and display QR codes dedicated to share contacts, WiFI SSID+password combination (etc.) to someone who was asking for creds from me.

    Awesome, but alt-tabbing got me annoyed after a few years of using. I started pursuing for more sophisticated interface. I decided to give `rofi` [3] a try. I managed to fork that repo and also adapt to my convention of using password-store, but I left i3 for a macOS.

    Currently, I have started working on a browser extension that takes care of suggesting password-store creds (based on the path, input parameters, location on the website etc.) similarly to what uBlock Origin does. That configuration is passed to my pass implementation, so on the, my browser have only "work" and "personal" auto-suggestion, when I am focusing the text input.

    I plan to create a similar app to Shortcat [4], but it will preserve the information what password has been asked for the focused app. I think, with VoiceOver assistance, it is more than possible to mitigate the need for alt-tabbing to the terminal for electron/native apps.

    [0]: It is a private repository, maybe when it will be polished enough I will open-source it.





  • Favorite Password Manager?

    gopass is what I've used for a long time. I like how it interfaces with the yubikey/gpg and how password stores can be held in a git repo. There are browser interfaces and GUIs for it but I tend to use it from the command line most of the time.

    I wrote my own secret manager: safe. It stores your secrets as encrypted files on your disk (like pass and gopass), and is accessible from the command line. It differs from them in that you only need a master password to use it (so no GPG keys to manage). It comes with an agent (like ssh-agent) that can store your encryption key in memory to avoid typing your master password over and over.
