Passbolt: passwords for groups

Passbolt

Did you ever face a situation where you can’t continue your work at office because you do not know the password of a resource managed by a colleague? Security is a great thing, but often it comes in the way of productivity even within a trusted group. Enter Passbolt.

Passbolt is for those information which are not as critical as your system or back account details and can be shared among a group of people working together, the most common example of which is a team in an office.

Passbolt works as a Firefox extension at the time of writing. A Chrome extension and a cmdline client are under development.

Features

  • Share passwords with team
  • Search and filter on passwords
  • Manage user privileges
  • Edit and review password complexity
  • Import and export OpenPGP keys
  • Authenticate using OpenPGP keys
  • Can integrate with email or chat clients
  • Extensible by design with published APIs
  • Open source and free

Installation

You can try the demo and install the Firefox extension from the Passbolt website.

    1. The problem here is there’s no way to trust claims as long as you don’t dive into the code yourself. While I can copy the words from the devs, I’ld rather prefer our readers check it out themselves.

      Admittedly, when it comes to security, we are extra cautious.
