Armory is an advanced open source program for managing
multiple bitcoin wallets with a high level of security available. The
software uses wallet encryption, can print permanent paper backups of
your wallets, and store your bitcoins on an offline computer for
maximum security from online threats.
Armory was designed from the ground up to focus first on
maximizing security, and then provide a well thought-out interface to
make using this security as simple as possible.
Armory is used by some of the most heavily-invested,
and most paranoid Bitcoin enthusiasts for maximum privacy and
security. The software is currently in a beta stage of development.

wallet that contains no private-key data, but can still be used
generate addresses and confirm payments
- Wallet encryption with time- and memory-bound key
derivation: AES256 in-place key encryption. Encryption key is
generated via script-based algorithm to eliminate GPU-acceleration in
brute-force passphrase guessing
- Import/Sweep Addresses - import private keys into your
(deterministic) wallet. Sweeping is possible on any existing
wallet-address, or as an alternative to importing an untrusted private
key. Supports private keys in hex, base58, and mini-private-key format
used on Casascius physical bitcoins

detection and correction of HDD byte errors - wallet-update logic
guarantees all atomic file operations
