KeePass 2.45 Professional/ KeePass 1.38 Classic

KeePass is a free open source password manager, 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 file. So you only have to remember one single master password or select the key file to unlock the whole database.

The databases are encrypted using the best and most secure encryption algorithms. A password database consists of only one file that can be transferred from one computer to another easily.

KeePass supports the Advanced Encryption Standard (AES, Rijndael) and the Twofish algorithm to encrypt its password databases.

Both of these ciphers are regarded as being very secure. AES e.g. became effective as a U.S. Federal government standard and is approved by the National Security Agency (NSA) for top secret information.

KeePass All Features:

KeePass uses the common CSV export format of various passwords safes like Password Keeper and Password Agent. Exports from these programs you can be easily import to your KeePass databases. The password list you can be export to various formats like TXT, HTML, XML and CSV.

The application has portable edition: you can carry it on an USB stick and runs on Windows systems without installation.

Strong Security

  • KeePass supports the Advanced Encryption Standard (AES, Rijndael) and the Twofish algorithm to encrypt its password databases. Both of these ciphers are regarded as being very secure. AES e.g. became effective as a U.S. Federal government standard and is approved by the National Security Agency (NSA) for top secret information.
  • The complete database is encrypted, not only the password fields. So, your user names, notes, etc. are encrypted, too.
  • SHA-256 is used to hash the master key components. SHA-256 is a 256-bit cryptographically secure one-way hash function. No attacks are known yet against SHA-256. The output is transformed using a key derivation function.
  • Protection against dictionary and guessing attacks: by transforming the master key component hash using a key derivation function (AES-KDF, Argon2, …), dictionary and guessing attacks can be made harder.
  • Process memory protection: your passwords are encrypted while KeePass is running, so even when the operating system dumps the KeePass process to disk, your passwords aren’t revealed.
  • [2.x] Protected in-memory streams: when loading the inner XML format, passwords are encrypted using a session key.
  • Security-enhanced password edit controls: KeePass is the first password manager that features security-enhanced password edit controls. None of the available password edit control spies work against these controls. The passwords entered in those controls aren’t even visible in the process memory of KeePass.
  • The master key dialog can be shown on a secure desktop, on which almost no keylogger works. Auto-Type can be protected against keyloggers, too.

Changes in KeePass 2.45 Professional:

New Features:

  • Added support for opening URLs with the new (Chromium-based) Microsoft Edge in private mode.
  • Added support for opening URLs with Vivaldi in private mode.
  • Added automatic assignment of mnemonics for ‘Open with …’ commands in the ‘URL(s)’ menu.
  • The entry templates menu now supports showing templates that are stored in subgroups of the templates group; each subgroup is displayed as a submenu.
  • When adding a new entry based on a template that has an empty user name, the user name is now set to the default user name of the database, unless the new entry is stored in the templates group.
  • When adding a new entry based on a template that has an empty password, a random password is generated now (based on the password generator profile ‘Automatically generated passwords for new entries’), unless the new entry is stored in the templates group.
  • When adding a new entry based on a template that does not expire, the expiry date is now set based on the option ‘By default, new entries expire in the following number of days’ (in ‘Tools’ → ‘Options’ → tab ‘Security’), unless the new entry is stored in the templates group.
  • New icon recoloring (with high DPI support, by deconstructing an ICO, modifying BMP palettes and data, and assembling a new ICO); there are 24 database colors now.
  • Added {UUID} placeholder, which is replaced by the UUID of the current entry.
  • The UUID of a group is now displayed in the group editing dialog (tab ‘General’).
  • When specifying a weak master password in the master key creation dialog, KeePass now shows a warning.
  • Triggers: added string comparison mode ‘Matches regular expression’.
  • Enforced configuration: added support for attributes that allow to specify the desired merge behavior.
  • Enforced configuration: for most lists, node keys are now used to find corresponding list items.
  • Plugins: added I/O connection event for customizing web requests.
  • Added workaround for Mono pre-authenticated anonymous web request bug.

Improvements:

  • Auto-Type: improved compatibility with VMware Horizon Client and Kaseya Live Connect.
  • Enhanced detection of Microsoft Edge.
  • The ‘Open with …’ commands in the ‘URL(s)’ menu are sorted now.
  • Improved performance of the entry templates menu; removed limitation to 30 templates.
  • Database descriptions are now displayed in file tab tooltips.
  • When editing an attachment directly from the main window, a history entry is created now.
  • UUIDs in the group and entry editing dialogs are now displayed both in hexadecimal and base 64 form.
  • Improved Bitwarden import module to support JSON files without groups.
  • If the trigger system is disabled using an enforced configuration file, most controls in the triggers dialog are disabled now, too.
  • Plugins: an I/O access event is now raised when checking the existence of a local database file.
  • In texts that are about to be displayed in a rich text box, U+FFFC characters are now replaced by question marks (in order to avoid the text being cut off at this point).
  • When running on Mono 5.10 or higher, a monospaced font is used in password text boxes by default again, as the Mono bug 5795 has been fixed.
  • Various code optimizations.
  • Minor other improvements.

Bugfixes:

  • Fixed a default value type problem in the hot key configuration settings.
  • Database file tab colors are now rounded to the nearest supported colors.

Changes in KeePass 1.38 Classic:

New Features:

  • When double-clicking the URL cell of an entry in the main entry list while holding the Shift key, KeePass now copies the URL to the clipboard (a double-click without Shift continues to open the URL; the option ‘Copy URLs to clipboard instead of opening them’ reverses this behavior).
  • Added yellow intermediate step in password quality progress bars.
  • KeePass now excludes itself from Windows Error Reporting.

Improvements:

  • The pattern-based password generator now supports repeating escaped characters using ‘{...}‘.

  • Various code optimizations.
  • Minor other improvements.

    If KeePass isn't quite right for you, check out "LastPass" which I've been using for about 2 weeks and like very much.

    The best password manager for storing passwords locally and encrypted. Works perfect with Firefox and the KeeFox add-on, and it can auto-fill login forms.
