KeePassX is a multi-platform port of KeePass, an open source and cross-platform password manager. This utility helps you to manage your passwords in a secure way. You can put all your passwords in one database, which is locked with one master key or a key-disk. This lets users only need to remember one single master password or insert the key-disk to unlock the whole database.

The databases are encrypted using the algorithms AES (alias Rijndael) or Twofish using a 256 bit key.

KeePassX currently uses same the database file format as the KeePass 1.x (Classic) password manager software for Windows.
