Complete and Reliable Password Manager for OpenSuSe - KeepassX

KeePassX is a password manager or safe which 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 means that you only have to remember one single master password or insert the key-disk to unlock the whole database. The complete database is always encrypted either with AES (alias Rijndael) or Twofish encryption algorithm using a 256 bit key. Therefore the saved information can be considered as quite safe.

KeePassX offers a little utility for secure password generation. The password generator is very customizable, fast and easy to use. Especially someone who generates passwords frequently will appreciate this feature.

Installation of  KeePassX: use "1-click" installer to install KeePassX
OpenSuSe 11.1 - install KeePassX 
OpenSuSe 11.0 - install KeePassX

After successful installation go to command prompt and type command: keepassx to start the application, now go to File menu and create a new database to store the information, here you also have to provide your master key to open/lock this database so DO NOT FORGET THIS PASSWORD.

After creating the secure database click on "Add new entry" to enter and save your password and you should see something like shown below ... here you can also tell KeePassX to generate the secure password.

Save the changes to return back to the main screen and whenever you need to provide the username and password you can use the feature of "copy password to clipboard" or "copy username to clipboard" of KeePassX.
